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.

Happy Endings

(Pro 28:10 KJV) Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.

“And they lived happily ever after.”  So end the many stories we heard as children.  As a child I accepted that as a good ending.  I wanted to think that life had one big problem, which solved left the future a time of unicorns and rainbows.  I probably kept wondering how come it didn’t work out that way.  Actually, it will.

As Christians we are promised a happy ending.  The problem is that we don’t set the time or place.  That is in God’s hands.  But the assurance is there.  I don’t know how many times I have used the mantra, “I have read the book and we win.”  There will be stumbles along the way.  I may not be one of those destined to arrive at the earthly destination.  Think of the Pilgrims who came to Plymouth.  I think around half of them died the first winter.  They did not live to see the next chapter of the story, but it was there.

So?  We have a promise.  We may not see it in our three score and ten but we will see it in eternity.

Amen. That's what keeps a lot of us going.
