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.

(Pro 8:30 KJV) Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

This reminds me of the gift of craftsmanship.  I believe this is a spiritual gift mentioned in the Old Testament.
(Exo 31:3 KJV) And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,
Some people just have the gift.  I don’t.  I can’t cut a board straight.  At the same time we each have a gift for edifying the saints.  We are to strive to be a “master workman” (525).  In the KJV the term used is “one brought up”.

So?  Obviously we are not equal to wisdom personified but we are children of God, made in His likeness and usually capable of much more than we are showing.
