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.

Consistent Hearts

(Pro 27:19 KJV) As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.

How can you tell what kind of “heart” (3820) someone has?  It is often hard in the short term.  People are good at presenting themselves in the best light.  You have to go with the face shown to you until you know better.  I find it interesting when people identify as a person of faith and yet their words make that hard to believe.  We have a lot of politicians who claim to be Catholics and yet consistently vote to support abortion.  That is a conflict that cannot be resolved.  We have the same thing with people who claim to be believers while being involved sexually with someone they have not married.  Contractors who claim to serve Jesus and do shoddy work would be another example.

So?  We are not to judge but we are to discern.  Keep in mind that you cannot rebuke and reprove if you are incapable of making observations of moral behavior.
