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.

Rock Soup

(Pro 30:26 KJV) The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;

Have you ever been in a position where you are desperate for an illustration of something?  You find yourself trying to explain something to a child and you say, “It is just like...” and your mind goes blank because you can’t think what it is like.  Perhaps you are trying to explain what made you run inside after dark.  Maybe you are a preacher looking for an application or with a point you want to make.

So the statement would be, “Wise like an animal that sleeps on the rocks.”  I am not sure what that means.  Maybe it speaks to you today when it has never even crossed your consciousness before.  Let me stretch.  Everything in your life can be put to good use.  It may be rocks.  Rocks make good insulation.  Rocks deflect gunfire.  Rocks last a long time.  

So?  What are the rocks of your life?  What have you been overlooking that can be used in a helpful way.  I am guessing it will be different for everyone.  Think of how the Japanese made eating raw fish a positive experience.  Consider the people that tell you popcorn is good without salt.  To each his own.
