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.

Putting Life into IKEA

(Pro 24:4 KJV) And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Man has a materialism magnet inside his heart.  We can’t help it.  We are physical beings living in a physical world.  You can’t eat a philosophical position and having the right position on the trinity will not keep you warm on a cold night.  We need a certain amount of wealth to survive and live decent lives.  In spite of that, material things are not enough. 

Our hearts, minds and homes need more than electricity and a well stocked kitchen.  If you have never been to an IKEA store you might want to see one.  At one place in the store they have models that show you how you can have a two bedroom house in under 700 square feet.  Of course it is stocked with their products.  What is missing is the “knowledge” that makes it a place you would want to come home to. 

So?  Make sure that you know where you stand in relation to things eternal.  That is the key to making all the other stuff of life have any real value.
