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.

(Pro 27:25 KJV) The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered.

As I read this today Ecclesiastes came to mind.  More specifically the song by the Byrds based on Ecclesiastes came to mind.  Get it going in your head, “For every thing, turn, turn, turn...”  In this verse you have the transition of hay making and gathering the new herbs that are growing.  Us city folks might talk about buying our winter coats during the spring sales while we are being forced to mow out lawns again.

Life goes on.  The Bible deals in linear history, not the circle of life found in Buddhism and The Lion King.  At the same time the Bible concedes that the seasons run in a continuous cycle.  It is more like a wheel of a car that is designed to get somewhere rather than a Ferris Wheel that gives you a few spins and dumps you.

So?  Let spring remind you of the potentials of Providence and the blessings waiting to happen.
