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.

Looking Good

(Pro 7:15 KJV) Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

Have you noticed how convenient it is for us to believe what we want to hear?  When you dress up for a special event and someone says, “You are looking good,” something in us believes them even if we have just looked in the mirror.  It isn’t always the advertisers that deceive us.  One of the techniques of selling is to make you think you need something.  It moves from something you never thought of to something you want and eventually becomes what you need.

So?  I guess the problem is our ability to lie to ourselves.  Others help but the biggest fool is the one who believes it.
