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.

Behind the Scenes

(Pro 16:28 KJV) A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.

Disruptive people are not always obvious.  Often they have a lot of practice in causing trouble without being noticed.  In the recent riots it is not the organizers that are in the front lines.  The whole purpose is to let someone else do the disrupting and if there is any penalty they will also pay.  This might be one of the reasons we are told to be calm and forgiving.  There is often something going on that is being kept from us.

So?  We need to also be careful that we are not the ones being manipulated.  One antidote is to make sure that our decisions are based on God’s word not someone’s opinion.
