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.

Be an Ox

(Pro 14:4 KJV) Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox.

I wonder if I will ever have the courage to quote this to my wife.  She would probably respond that “ox” is the right word and tell me to clean up my work bench.  We tend to make evaluations based on the superficial or momentary rather than looking to deeper issues.  Just because my desk is a mess doesn’t mean that I don’t know where things are or that I am getting nothing done.

So?  I need to respond by considering whether I am making excuses for not cleaning up or it is really the result of actions well done.
