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.

Factor It In

(Pro 26:24 KJV) He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;

Hatred is real.  Most of the people I rub elbows with are mellow and gracious.  If they were the only people in the world then verses like this would not be necessary but there it is.  So many Christians drift through life denying and ignoring what is going on around them.  They think that if they are nice to pagans then pagans will be nice to them.  Sometimes that works.  Be alert to the fact that often it does not.

It is becoming more clear every day as we watch what is happening politically and culturally that there are a lot of people who hate God and because of that, they hate you and me.  It is only deserved in that God keeps reminding them that they are sinners.  God’s word keeps condemning homosexuality and fornication.  They don’t like it when a holy God won’t change His standards to make them feel good about themselves.

So?  We are called to holiness.  That will never be accepted in the world.  Sadly it is often not accepted in the church either.  It is still God’s expectation.
