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.

Poor at Oppression

(Pro 28:3 KJV) A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.

We have been so brainwashed by socialist thinking that we believe that oppression is a function of the rich and not a result of human depravity.  It is possible to be righteous and rich at the same time.  It is possible to be poor and depraved at the same time.  Our financial status does not require certain types of behavior.  Rich people are just more powerful and have more options.  This is why so many people on the left hate America.  Poor Americans are wealthier than most people in the third world.  Therefore America must be evil.

So?  When God cleans up a heart that heart begins to clean up our actions.  What America needs is revival not prosperity.  What I need is revival.  I will let you decide for you.
