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.

(Pro 12:15 KJV) The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

One of the early titles for the church was the “way” (1870).  I don’t know if there is any documentation of how this evolved.  It may have come from Jesus’ statement,

(Joh 14:6 KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
It indicated that life had changed.  No longer could we do our own thing.  No longer could we follow mindlessly after the gurus of our culture.  No more could we go forward without thinking.  Now we had a path laid out for us, a path outlined by Jesus and reflected in the scriptures.

So?  Wisdom is antithetical to foolishness.  It chooses what Robert Frost labeled the “one less traveled”.
