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.

Too Much of a Good Thing

(Pro 27:7 KJV) The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.

This is a verse about attitude.  It is not the taste of the food that changes.  It is the condition of the eater that makes the difference.  “Honey” (5317) is praised in other verses.  It is recognized as a good part of the diet.  There is no problem with the honey and yet it is being pushed away.

Have you ever met someone who is seething with rage at God?  Of course you have.  It is possible that you are there or have been there.  Did God suddenly change?  Did you change? 

So?  It usually seems to us that we can do little about our deep felt emotions, our attitudes.  Without trying to point any fingers except at myself I would say that it is often because we don’t want to change.  I pray that the Holy Spirit would be patient with us until we get hungry enough to be grateful for what He has to offer.
