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.

Watch Your Step

(Pro 4:12 KJV) When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

Part of wisdom is knowing the location of the stationary obstacles.  When I get up in the middle of the night to answer a call of nature, I don’t need to turn on any lights.  I know what is between me and the bathroom.  I can also walk through the house in the dark, usually with no problems.  I know where the dangers are.  Wisdom can give us that about life.

Part of wisdom is knowing about the moving obstacles.  We have two cats in the house.  One of them seems to think its role in life is to stop right in front of me and often roll over and dare me to go farther.  I need to keep that in mind as I walk.  It doesn’t matter how bright the light is, the cats move, or not.  We also have issues with scorpions and centipedes.  That means bright lights and vigilance or wear shoes.

So?  God has given us the directions we need and the ability we need to walk in righteousness.  Now to use them.
