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.

An Agreeable God

(Pro 29:2 KJV) When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

Righteousness is not in style, at least not by any Biblical definition.  If you pay any attention to the political and social chatter you do find words like “moral” being used but they don’t mean what you think they do.  We have a political party that feels it is acceptable to kill a child before it is born and consider it moral to be sensitive to the “choice” of the mother.  God would not agree.  Sexual fulfillment is viewed as moral if both people are in love and consenting.  It doesn’t matter if they are married or the same sex.  Morality is defined by how they feel.  God would not agree.  People are calling for segregation on college campuses and in public facilities.  Since they view it as empowering black citizens it is moral.  God would not agree.

So?  You have an influence.  Make sure that it is “righteous” (6662).  God would agree.
