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.

Basic Equipment

(Pro 24:14 KJV) So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.

We must “find” (4672) “wisdom” (2451).  This seems to become another of those conditional statements that we find in the Bible to balance absolute statements such as “by grace alone.”

“Wisdom” (2451) is essential for your “soul” (5315).  So many people who embrace the name “Christian” reject how important it is to learn, grow and change.  They tend to think of Biblical essentials as the add on that they are used to purchasing with a bit of soft ware.  I don’t know about you, but almost all of the things I do on a computer, other than games, I could do on my first computer.  The graphics and ability to click on things have streamlined and made the basics easier but I still do the same things I did then.  For me the computer is a fancy typewriter and adding machine.  

So?  Wisdom is not an add on.  Wisdom is part of the requirements.  It is not the stereo system in your new car, it is the steering wheel.  Seek wisdom.  Neglect it at peril to your soul.
