An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Nailed It

(Pro 16:19 KJV) Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

I have always had big dreams or, at least, extravagant fantasies.  I wanted a life of purpose and after I became a Christian understood that as doing great things for God.  From my point of view it did not work out that way.  I have been a nail rather than a master cabinet maker.  It has frustrated me and one of the lessons I have had to learn is expressed in this verse.

God does not need me to bring order to the chaos of our world.  He has things well in hand even if it does not look like it to my limited mind.  What He wants is for me to understand that. 

So?  If I am to be nothing but a brad on the furniture of life then I want to be the most reliable brad in existence.  Nothing wrong with that.
