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.

One Solo

(Pro 20:6 KJV) Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?

I want to rephrase the question to “Can you find anyone worth trusting?”  This is an important question.  It must be answered regularly in our daily interactions and decisions.  This verse also makes it clear that the person you are wondering about is not supposed to have a lot of influence in the decision.  His opinion does not matter.  It cannot be trusted.  

This does not mean he is unworthy.  An honest opinion of our self is always the hardest to form.  The error goes both ways.  It always amazes me the people that are willing to get up and sing solos in church.  Once I could see.  Everyone is entitled to give it a try.  Repeated strings of flatted notes and cracking chords should not be repeated.  I enjoy playing the guitar.  I have been working on playing the melody of hymns I enjoy.  When I worship on the front porch at sunrise I honestly believe the Lord enjoys it as much as I do.  I only had to try it once in church to realize I was not ready for prime time.

So?  Be honest with yourself.  Be honest when considering others.  Keep in mind that if they clean out the dishwasher you might be the one trying to find the silverware.
