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.

 Pro 27:20 KJV) Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.

A misconception of our society is that sincerity is a deciding factor.  Thus if we really want something, it must be good.  Not necessarily.  This verse reminds us of the carnal nature that we are all born with.  My granddaughter is with us for a few weeks and she is in the “mine” phase.  She probably won’t get out of it until she is saved and the Spirit takes control.  It is amazing how many things are hers.  The reason?  Because she says so, or as this verse would put it, her eyes say so.

When we are redeemed and the Holy Spirit has worked on the inner man our choices become more righteous.  

So?  There are three levels of spiritual life mentioned at the end of I Corinthians 2 and the beginning of chapter three.  The natural man is unsaved.  The fleshly man is saved but not mature.  The spiritual man is ready to make decisions in confidence.  Strive to be the spiritual man.
