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.

Rub Someone the Right Way

(Pro 27:17 KJV) Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

Part of the set of knives in our kitchen is a steel rod.  You use it to keep your knives sharp.  I am not sure but I get the impression that if you wait too long to sharpen the knife, the rod does not do the job.  It is something that requires constant use.  The same thing would apply for our need for the right kind of fellowship.  It is hard to stay sharp if we don’t keep the edge.

As I write we are going through all the panic about a virus.  The government has decreed that churches cannot meet.  When they lighten up they say things like “sit six feet apart” and “no singing”.  To be honest it is kind of hard to worship through a Zoom ap. 

So?  We need to find ways to get fellowship.  To be honest, the odds of going to hell are a lot stronger than the odds of serious complications from this virus.

I don't know why Christians aren't meeting in their homes.

Fear of the virus and fear of the government. Not enough fear of God.

Grace and peace
