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.

Babysitter or Parent

(Pro 3:12 KJV) For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

One thing I have given up on is trying to raise other people’s children.  When I was a teacher it was part of the job.  It was a thankless task because many of the parents didn’t want you corrupting their children with things like responsibility and honesty.  I did what I could but there was a limit on my investment.  With my kids it was a different story.  That was an area that did not allow for giving up.  With grandchildren it gets a little more testy but since we raised our daughter right we are not worried.

So?  Accept the position of God’s child not someone else’s kid being babysat.  God has a genuine investment in shaping you up.
