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.

Google It

(Pro 19:2 KJV) Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.

What an age we live in.  Even with the censoring going on by the social media moguls, the availability of “knowledge” (1847) is impressive.  The mantra of our age has switched from “look it up” to “Google it”.  We can get so much information that it swamps us.  The access to all of this becomes an excuse when it should be a responsibility. 

God gave us a brain.  He created us in His image.  That means that we are expected to use that brain and one of the areas of importance has to do with moral choices.  We are not robots.  We are the highest level of creation and with that comes to duty to use the gifts we have.  On the internet keep your brain engaged.  When reading the Bible or listening to a “Bible teacher” keep your brain engaged.  At all times keep your thinking cap on and powered up.

So?  God gave us free will for a reason.  Rejoice.  You are not a dog that automatically responds to “Squirrel”.
