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.

Don’t Be a Fly

(Pro 18:3 KJV) When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.

“Wicked” (7563) people exist.  I have pointed that out often because Proverbs points it out often.  This is reminding us that their touch is poison.  They pollute everything they touch.  They drag down the upright, soil the clean and compromise the truth.  I think it is second nature to them.  It is the reason that organizations tend to move toward godless positions.  You see it in politics but you kind of expect it there.  You also see it in the church.  You would think the church would be vaccinated against evil people in positions of power, but it doesn’t work out that way.  People who call themselves “ministers of God” and “Christian” publicly deny the resurrection and the need for regeneration.

Often these people know exactly what they are doing.  They know it so well that they are experts and covering it up.  An obvious place would be the cults.  They use terms like “Son of God” knowing what you mean by it but they mean something totally different.  We see it in education with the dumbing down of the books with a plea for meeting people where they are while talking about maintaining high standards.  We see it in politics when they corrupt the word “justice.”

So?  Keep your mind in gear and know the truth by reading and listening.  Understand that even nice people can be serving Satan because they know you can catch more flies with sugar than with salt.
