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.

Two Sides of a Coin

(Pro 19:27 KJV) Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.

This verse in two translations is like coming to an intersection with two “Danger” signs.  One points to the left and the other to the right.  Which is correct?  If you were driving you would logically conclude that both are and that the only safe way is straight ahead.  That is what we are look at here.  The point is that you need to be very careful whom you listen to. 

Think about the input to your ears each day.  You might have music on all day.  When is the last time you really listened to the words and asked yourself what they meant?  You might have talk radio or the TV on non-stop.  You may sit in restaurants and listen to the conversations going on around you. 

So?  The only way you can know what is worth listening to is to know what is healthy.  The only way you can know that for sure is to do your own reading and thinking.  Start with the Bible and go from there, but then you knew I would say that.
