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.

Simple Measure

(Pro 31:12 KJV) She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

We often fall into the trap of saying, “That does not apply to me.”  This verse is describing the perfect wife.  I have never been a wife, nor do I expect to ever fill that role.  Like almost everything else in the Bible, it applies to me.

How do I treat people around me?  What is the effect of their contact with me?  Our commission is to do them “good” (2896b).

So?  Seems simple.  Seems measurable.  Today is the day.
