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.

Bullets and Arrows

(Pro 26:18 KJV) As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,

This verse is in a chapter that gives a list of deviant, evil character traits.  As I write the news is full of the riots and mayhem going on in certain major cities of America.  What is fascinating and frustrating is watching the news media and a lot of public figures act like this is some kind of Constitutionally protected peaceful protest.  Substitute “gunfire” for “arrows” (2671) and you have a description of what the camera shows you.

There are people claiming to be Christians who are making excuses for this kind of behavior.  There is no excuse for the excuses.  Obviously these people are rejecting the God of the Bible for the gods of political correctness.

So?  It is good to be concerned about justice as long as you realize that justice is based on the holy standards of God, not the politically motivated and constantly changing standards of the politicians.  Do it God’s way.  Stand up for God’s standards.
