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.

Word Games

(Pro 12:6 KJV) The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.

This could be taken as a reminder and a warning.  We are reminded that there are “wicked” (7563) people in the world.  Too many don’t want to admit that or qualify it by claiming they don’t know what they are doing.  Rubbish.  They know exactly what they are doing.  One of the great joys they have is dragging down the “upright” (3477).

They can drag the righteous down by lies and gossip.  Even more effective is the way in which they can lull us into complacency and entice us with temptations. 

So?  Be aware.  Be informed.  Be righteous.  It doesn’t just happen but it can happen.
