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.

Waters of Deception

(Pro 18:4 KJV) The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

As I write we are in a political season.  Since we are Americans, it is always a political season.  We have a lot of people who want us to listen to them.  I guess this blog is another example of that.  I don’t know if I have anything to say but I have a need to say.  I am satisfied that I am seeking truth.  I may not always recognize it but it is the goal.  You cannot assume that of many of the sources you have.  

Always consider the source.  I remember the first diet drinks that were successful.  They were put out of circulation because of some “research” that said the sweetener caused cancer.  What was of interest was the rumor that the “research” was paid for by the sugar industry.  That is a common denominator in people who push green energy because they want government contracts to teachers that claim they need more money for education.

So?  Remember the words of Jesus,

(Mat 10:16 KJV) Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Don’t fall into the deep waters of deception.
