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.

(Pro 13:10 KJV) Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

Evidently Socrates once said, "The unexamined life is not worth living".  That is another way of getting to this verse.  As an introvert I am deep into introspection.  I have a hard time believing that people never stop to examine their motives or pause to consider that they may be the one who is wrong.  In that I am wrong.  Evidently it is quite common.  Solomon says that kind of attitude will lead to nothing but problems. 

I have found that I need to accept the fact that I might be right and the other person might be wrong.  Others need to look at the other side of the mirror.  I am not sure which is harder.

So?  Attitude checks are vital.
