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.

Yes, and Yes

(Pro 24:11 KJV) If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;

Is this verse cultural/political or spiritual/salvation?  I think the answer is, “Yes.”  We have a responsibility to do what we can to save people’s lives.  Applications that are not really popular have to do with opposing abortion and working to free slaves still in bondage.  What is even more unpopular is to point out that bondage is in existence in the “free” world in the form of sweat shops, prostitution and child pornography. 

We also need to keep in mind that the end of a road without Jesus is eternal damnation.  We don’t like it.  They don’t like it.  That changes nothing.

So?  Be politically and socially active.  Be a witness for Jesus.
