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 19:10 KJV) Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.

This verse brings to mind another mantra that our culture is pushing which might be contrary to scripture.  That is the mantra of equity and equality.  We tend to forget that the concept of being equal before the law, which is Biblical, has nothing to do with making everyone equal.  When you hear that it means making everyone the same and that ain’t gonna happen.

People are different.  The Bible marks a clear line between fools and the wise.  It points out that sloth can make a difference in how your life goes.  Here we see the reality of social classes.

So?  Our job is to live righteously before God.  It is not dependent on our income or class.  It is dependent on grace and obedience.
