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.

Rescue Priorities

(Pro 22:1 KJV) A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

Is money important?  In our modern culture yes.  If you lived in North America a thousand years ago, not so much.  At that point you couldn’t even count your horses as wealth because the Europeans had not brought them yet.  The point here is not the physical minerals made into coins.  The comparison is objects you value compared to relationships you value, things versus people.

Things can be replaced.  If your house was on fire would you rescue your child first or your antique clock?  I hope that you don’t need to think too long about that.  

So?  Priorities.  We all have them.  They will decide if you have time to worship.  They may determine how your children turn out.  They will effect your eternity.
