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.

Lockdown Literature

(Pro 21:29 KJV) A wicked man hardeneth his face: but as for the upright, he directeth his way.

Where do you want to put your energy?  Do you want to spend it researching ways to look good or would you prefer to spending it actually getting better?  It seems like a rhetorical question but it is something we should be thinking about.  There are a lot of ways I can invest my time.  Some are fun.  Some are nothing but work.  Some are drudgery.  Some are rewarding.  Should I read the latest best selling novel?  Actually I wonder if I should spend any time on current cultural focal points.  Have you ever gone to the library and investigated the new books they are investing in?  It seems like a competition to waste time.

Have you read any of the classics?  Now would be a good time before they are edited to reflect modern morals.  How about Christian classics, and I don’t mean Max or Stormy.  

So?  If you don’t lift weights your don’t get stronger.  If you don’t get enough vitamin C you get scurvy.  If you don’t read the map you won’t know where your are.  The virus lockdown has been potentially a great time to grow.
