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 4:5 KJV) Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

Priorities are in place.  We live by them.  The problem we have is acknowledging them.  Just about anyone will say that their family is a high priority and yet they allow just about anything to dump the kids with a babysitter.  Someone once said to find out what is important in your life, look at your checkbook.  Obviously that is dated.  Who uses checks any more, right?  But you understand the point.

“Wisdom” (2451) should be a priority.  We might even say it is important to us.  How many of us do much to “get” (acquire NASB) (7069) it?  The demand here is that we put aside the other pursuits of the day and get started acquiring wisdom. 

So?  The day may be almost over.  Your brain may be on hold.  Sounds like a good time to make a decision and start the journey.
