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.

Hang on to the Good Ones

(Pro 19:4 KJV) Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.

Do you have any long time friends?  If you are older you are probably in a position to attract gold diggers.  You may be a supervisor or an executive and people will approach you based on what you can give them.  It is hard to tell the difference between the sincere and the users.  Older people learn to value those who liked them when they were not just a career advancing asset.

If you are younger it is a good time to establish those that will be loyal to you later.  It is a time of discernment.  In thirty years will you want people to know you hung around with that guy?  The other side of that is will people want others to know you were their friend?

So?  Be worthy and make careful choices.  If you are older don’t assume people laugh at your jokes because they are funny.
