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.

Wisdom Buffet

(Pro 9:3 KJV) She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,

Good news, the buffet is still open.  It will be open when you get there.  More good news, there will be plenty of seating.  Too often we ignore what is available.  I imagine you have had the experience of seeing someone panhandling in front of a fast food joint and on the door is a big sign saying, “Help wanted.”  God’s wisdom is like that.  Unfortunately we are too often like the beggar.

Humans are funny creatures.  I am always amazed when people with a closet full of clothes say they have nothing to wear.  Or how about the person who has shelves of food who believes they need to go out to eat.  In the same way, God offers a wisdom buffet.

So?  Wisdom is something you can’t force on someone.  Don’t be that someone.  Partake.
