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.

Day Six

(Pro 29:1 KJV) He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

The reminder is, “Hang in there.”  How often have you seen someone, maybe yourself, who has gone the extra mile, put in the effort, paid the price, only to quit just before victory is achieved?  It is a sad situation.  It is such a temptation to focus on what is right in front of us instead of the big picture.  We joke and say we can be encouraged even when society seems to be falling apart because we have read the book and know how it ends.  It is not a joke.  Why do young parents continue to discipline children who say, “I hate you”?  Because they know how it will end if they do not hang in there and they know how it can end if they are faithful.

So?  Hang in there.  Remember they had to walk around Jericho seven days for the walls to come down.  Assume you are on day six.
