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.

The Pause

(Pro 25:19 KJV) Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.

I am at the age where I cannot assume that my feet will work properly.  It is weird the way I can suddenly develop a pain in one ankle for no reason and after a few steps it will depart.  It isn’t something I can have a doctor check out because, just like in my old cars, if it ain’t broke, you can’t fix it.  

I can’t fix it but I can prepare for it.  When I get up, whether it is from bed the first thing in the morning or from a chair in the middle of the day, I stand with caution.  It only takes a few moments to get mobile.  Sometimes it is just that pause to make sure everything is working.  Other times it is a chance for the parts to come together as intended.  Then I am ready to go.

So?  Before you put any confidence in the people around you, give it a pause.  Consider and pray.  It might keep you from an unexpected fall.
