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.

Choice Folly

(Pro 13:16 KJV) Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly.

We are living in an age of extreme “folly” (200).  As a general rule we cannot say that people are unaware of statements of truth and morality.  I would guess that none of us know anyone who has spent their entire life in a rainforest without any contact with the outside world.  We have all the information we need to make decisions, yet so many ignore what is there to see.  I don’t worry much any more about the question, “What about the people who have never heard the gospel?”  The information and opportunity is out there.  The majority  choose to ignore it.

So?  There is nothing you or I can do about the masses that are happy in their ignorant bliss.  What we can do is make sure that we are setting the kind of example that will make it impossible for them to ignore it totally.
