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 11:20 KJV) They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight.

Good news.  It is possible to live “blameless” (8549) lives in the eyes of God.  Again we must state that if it were not possible to live holy lives, statements like this would be meaningless.  We also need to remember that this is from God’s point of view.  It does not mean that you will live up to the high standards of your mother-in-law or your friendly IRS auditor.  God is the one who defines and explains righteousness.

Maybe that is why some people don’t believe they can live right.  They measure by the rules of their church or the opinions of their friends.  That will always lead to failure.  Or they simply don’t want to miss out on what they think is “all the fun”.

So?  It is possible but it needs to be a priority.  The part that worries me is that it does not seem to be an option.
