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.

In the Bubble

(Pro 8:32 KJV) Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

The context of this remark is creation and the march of history.  We are then reminded of how obedience makes us “blessed” (835).  I don’t know about you but I begin every day rejoicing in the creation.  I watch the day emerge from the darkness.  Some days are spectacular.  Some days are pure vanilla.  All of this show the variety and care that God has put into our world.  I often reflect on how awesome it will be when I have perfect vision and no infirmities.  

I am also living in a blessed time in history.  If you know anything about the advance of civilization you know we live in a bubble of progress and prosperity.  In America even the poor people live in luxury compared to history.  

So?  Rejoice if you are living in obedience.  The promise is there for you.
