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.

Who Took My Glasses?

(Pro 16:2 KJV) All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.

When I joke about my concern about dementia in my life, I often throw in the caveat, “I will be the last to know.”  I often wonder if I am the one going crazy or if it is the people I am dealing with.  You know, the conversations you don’t remember ever having, the conversations that you do remember having, the things you were supposed to have said that are not the things you would ever say, the can of peaches that suddenly appears at the front of the shelf where you looked five times.  Or what about finding your glasses right where you left them.  You get the drift.

This is a reminder that even when we are mentally fit our ability to make excuses for ourselves is prevalent enough to be mentioned in the Bible.  We tend to live in our own skin and thus our opinions are a bit subjective.  

So?  Keep in mind that God put people around you to offer criticism and it is for your own good.  You may not like it.  I know I don’t.  It is still necessary for us to listen.
