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.

Two Is Better than One

(Pro 4:3 KJV) For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

This is not a doctrinal proof text but is does go along with something that is consistent throughout scripture and through observation of life.  Children need both a father and a mother.  The reason we need to reinforce this is because our current cultural elites are trying to drive the father out of the home.  How many TV programs do you watch where there is a healthy family?  I can’t answer that because I don’t watch TV but I saw a pattern when I did.

The pattern is to have no man around or to make the man a fool.  This goes across the board.  My main memory of reading Berenstain Bears was that the father was a nice guy but pretty incompetent. 

So?  We need to keep reminding ourselves that our culture and out faith do not run on the same rails.  Keep checking.
