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.

Consider the Source

(Pro 21:30 KJV)  There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.

Have you ever been in a conversation with someone and they respond to something you didn’t say?  Maybe you have been the one who makes a fool of yourself.  It happens.  It can also take the form of someone making a big point about a point they completely missed.  During the presidential debates President Trump made a comment about coyotes smuggling children across the border.  Evidently a lot of people who consider themselves important started mocking him for the statement.  They seemed to think he was talking about four legged, canine animals.  They immediately demonstrated their lack of “wisdom” (2451) and “understanding” (8394).

When it comes to politics and people who have over-inflated self-images this can be funny.  If we are talking about eternal issues it can me much more serious.  

So?  Consider your own opinions.  Consider the opinions of people who reject the wisdom of the Bible.  One is to be ignored, maybe both if they are based on the same data base.
