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.

Peg It

(Pro 12:14 KJV) A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.

What you do makes a difference.  Why you do it makes a difference.  Here we have mention of both speaking and working with your hands.  It is assumed that the things being said and done are positive and moral.  There is value in just doing the right thing.

We sometimes want to change the world.  We want to write the classic novel or record a song that endures forever.  I am at the point where I am feeling blessed if I can get through the day without breaking a dish or stubbing my toe.

So?  Today’s grace is enough for today’s challenges.  Maybe you will get famous tomorrow but for now be satisfied that you got all the square pegs in square holes.
