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.

Attentive Ears

(Pro 28:9 KJV) He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

If you don’t listen to God then He will not listen to you.  This is not a matter of childishness or trading.  It is the simple fact that your prayers will be totally off focus if you don’t have any idea of right or wrong.  

How did someone listen to the law?  Obviously it would involve doing a little reading yourself.  There were fewer literate people in those days so some might be limited to what they could hear from the rabbi in the synagogue.  Advice from family members would be key.  For us today this would include listening to the Holy Spirit.  There are many sources.

So?  It is not a good thing to be an “abomination” (8441).  Learn to listen.

Sort of like some baby-murdering, sodomite supporting politicians praying for Trump.

Or even for Biden.
