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.

Home Exercise Program

(Pro 4:13 KJV) Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

Recently I went to get physical therapy for the first time.  It was an interesting experience.  I was given a series of exercises.  They did some pushing and pulling.  After a few sessions I was sent on my way with discharge instructions that said, “Maintain the Home Exercise Program...”  Right.  I walk out the door with the best of intentions but also with an awareness of how my mind works.  I am not sure that the bending and stretching will make it all well again.  One thing I do know is that if I don’t do them they won’t help.

We all know more than we do.  People want Bible studies and small groups.  They want to take classes and train.  The simple truth is that we already know enough.  If we would simply do what we know we are supposed to do we would be better off.  

So?  It isn’t the therapist’s fault if I don’t get better.  It isn’t the pastor’s fault if I don’t grow spiritually.  It would be great if we would all grow up.
