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.

The Source

(Pro 16:23 KJV) The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.

Perhaps we are looking at an element of wisdom here.  I think we can agree that wisdom is not locked in with knowledge, intelligence or political power.  It would seem that in addition to those valuable assets you need a “heart” (3820) that is right.  Keep in mind that wisdom starts with a fear of the Lord.

Great teachers have had a great teacher.  It could be another human being.  It could be experience.  It will need the involvement of the Great Teacher, the Holy Spirit.

So?  It is such a good idea to start your day by seeking the heart and mind of the Lord.  I know I find it necessary.

Assuming Michener's research was valid, it taught a lot about the history of the Middle East.
