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.

Going Ostrich

(Pro 5:6 KJV) Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.

If we are paying attention, everywhere we turn we see how the common culture of America is being purged of Christian content.  The key here is in paying attention.  Many people are not.  I think it is a choice, not an accident.  It is true that they did not get up one day and say, “I am going to go ostrich today.”  Most of the things that sneak up on us and form our lives don’t come with signs hanging on them.  At the same time we know we are on thin ice for many of our decisions.  If we make it across we breathe a sigh of relief.  If we fall in we call for help, if we can.

Christmas is one example.  It used to be I could turn on a radio station weeks before the day and get a good solid run of genuine Christmas music.  Then it contracted to start on Christmas Eve.  Then it became a bunch of secular music put out by people who were told they needed to do a Christmas album.  Thus it becomes a day of “Imagine” or insipid romantic riffs.  

So?  This chapter is talking about the danger of sexual sin.  The Biblical standard is being watered down and warped on an accelerated basis.  I don’t know if it is a problem for you.  It is a problem for someone you know.  Grab hold of standard of righteousness and put in a good word for the spiritual life.
