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.

One in a Crowd

(Pro 7:7 KJV) And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,

How was this young man picked out?  What made him different than those around him?  Obviously the street was filled with young people with nothing constructive to do.  That is not an unusual vista.  When I was young and foolish we used to go down into LA and walk down Hollywood Boulevard looking at the strange people.  We were not noticing that they were looking right back at what they considered strange people.  Every once in awhile you would see someone walking in a determined way through the crowd.  That is this young man.

He knew where he was going and what he was looking for.  At the same time he was ignoring where he was really going.  He saw a scintillating evening with a loose woman.  What he did not see were the “chambers of death” at the end of the road.

So?  Having a goal is not a good thing if it is destructive eternally.  Know where you are heading.  Make wise decisions because sometimes it becomes too late to change direction.
