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.

Check Here if You Agree to the Terms

(Pro 1:30 KJV) They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

When it comes to wisdom and the direction that God wants to give us, there must be buy in.  We must “would” (accept NASB) (14).  You are used to doing this in your daily life without paying attention.  You do it every time you put an app on your phone, add software to your computer, visit a new doctor or just about anything you do that requires you to sign your name.  We keep getting asked, “Do you agree to the terms?”  It really irritates people when you actually try to read the small print but it might be important to find out if you are pledging your first born child to Microsoft.

If you have spent any time reading Proverbs you have noticed that there are certain things that keep getting repeated.  You are to fear the Lord.  You are to be honest in business.  You are not to be a sluggard.  If you are even half way paying attention you know what God wants.

So?  Are you accepting his counsel and reproof?  He waits.
