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.

Fools to the Right of Me,...

(Pro 27:22 KJV) Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him.

I have a lot of opinions.  Since they are my opinions, I assume they are legitimate, well reasoned positions that reflect truth.  Of course I do.  Otherwise they would not be my opinions.  Although I like to think of myself as being rational and willing to listen to dissenting ideas, in reality I am not sure that is so true.  I like to think this verse applies to other people.  To be honest, it usually does.  When you have someone claiming to be a Christian who is involved sexually without benefit of marriage, denies the sinful nature, rejects the physical resurrection of Christ and thinks abortion is about choosing instead of murder, I don’t think their logic is much worth listening to.

So?  On one side, realize that some people are content in their sin and are not willing to listen.  On the other side, make sure that the description does not fit you, or me.
