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.

Choose Wisely

(Pro 4:14 KJV) Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.

Is it easy or hard to recognize a “wicked” (7563) “path” (734)?  Sometimes the difficulty depends on the path; sometimes, the chooser.  I think of mowing the lawn.  There are times when it is easy to see where I have mowed and others where it is impossible.  If I am going through brush I look for indications of where people have gone before.  If I am at the airport everything is labeled.  One key factor is knowing where I am going.

Some people end up on the wrong road because they don’t know their destination.  As followers of the living God we should know a bit about where we want to end up.  I think a lot of our choices are clear if we are honest with ourselves.

So?  God knows what you know.  He knows your heart.  He does not play games but is always willing to forgive honest mistakes.  Choose wisely.
