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 Wish, Not Three

(Pro 1:2 KJV) To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;

This verse should bring to mind the dialogue between Solomon and God.  You can read the story in I Kings 3.  God gave Solomon a wish and he asked for an understanding heart, or in popular tales, wisdom.  This is where Solomon starts off in the book of Proverbs.  It reminds us that the first thing we seek should be “wisdom” (2451).  Everything else falls into place if we have that.  What does not fall into place is not needed.

So?  You don’t need three wishes, one will do.
