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.

The Cameras Are Rolling

(Pro 18:7 KJV) A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

Most of us reject the conviction that we are “fools” (3684).  Deep down in our hearts we think we have at least a few of the answers to society’s questions.  I guess that is natural.  We tend to be locked into our own senses and mind.  It is rare, if even never, that two people can really understand each other.  We survive and get along much of the time because we are wise enough to keep our mouths shut.

Keeping our mouths shut is extra important in this modern day of microphones and cameras everywhere.  Try to think of a time you are not within recording distance of some piece of technology.  Now consider that the few gaps in that coverage are covered by the ear of God.

So?  Avoiding being a fool helps us in our daily relationships.  It may keep us out of jail.  It will also help us in our spiritual walks.
