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.

In His Time

(Pro 15:23 KJV) A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!

The “timely” (6256) “word” (1697) of the NASB is probably more accurate than the “word in due season” of the KJV but the latter is more poetic.  There is a season for things to be said.  Like humor, timing is important in passing on truth.  Face it.  Most people are not ready or willing to hear anything that goes against their preconceived notions.  I would assume that applies to us.

So?  Be alert for the right time to share about salvation.  Now is a good time to share about the hope we have and our lack of fear concerning the virus going around.  If you don’t have a lack of fear maybe it is time for a word to you.
