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.

Non Fake News

(Pro 10:31 KJV) The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out.

One of the concerns that Americans have in the present is finding a reliable source of news.  Since God has placed us in a republic and we have the responsibility to vote, this is an important goal.  One way I filter out whom I listen to is by statements they make having to do with moral issues.  If the source expresses support for abortion, homosexual marriage, critical race theory or any of a number of concepts that are antithetical to the Bible, then I know they do not deserve my listening ear.

You see, it is only the “mouth” (6310) of the “righteous” (6662) that can speak truth.  I know it says “wisdom” here but wisdom is grounded in truth.  If someone will speak evil in one area that God has made clear, they will speak evil and act evil in other areas.  They are not to be trusted.

So?  God gave us a brain.  In our case He also put us in a political situation where we are expected to engage them in our choices.  Keep seeking truth.  Keep seeking truth sayers.
