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.

Crazy Talk

(Pro 9:12 KJV) If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

Some people think that talking to yourself is a sign of being crazy.  In this day of exotic telephone devises we have to look more than twice.  This might be a recommendation of the habit.  At least it is a reminder that we should follow our own advice.

I am always amused at preachers and teachers who try to instruct others about marriage when theirs is a mess.  I have often wondered how our pulpits would change if we took the advice of Paul about leaders in the church,
(1Ti 3:4-5 KJV) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
When it comes to giving input on leaders we need to be open and honest.  Unless we are asked it might just be better to keep things to ourselves.

So?  Each of us needs to be responsible for our own house.  If you are single that is extra hard because you don’t have anyone around to point out your flaws.
