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.

Pay Off

(Pro 27:18 KJV) Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.

This stand alone verse seems to be saying you get what you pay for or in Biblical Terms, you will reap what you sow.  How do you treat people around you?  How do you do your job and fulfill your responsibilities?  It makes a difference in what life gives back.  Often, because we believe we are saved by grace, we have the idea that our failures and lack of effort will be overlooked and we will get a free pass.  That is a totally different issue from the reality that we cannot pay off our sins by our efforts.

So?  Serve.  Work hard.  Do your part.  It makes a difference.
