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.

Be a Mystery

(Pro 12:23 KJV)  A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.

If you walked into someone’s living room and saw a painting on the wall that looked like the work of Frederic Remington you would assume it was a copy.  When I was checking the spelling of his name I did a little looking at prices.  Originals at auction don’t give you much information on the price.  The one I found was in the $400,000 range to start.  Prints started at $25.  While I would assume that what I was looking at was a print, the wall of the living room might be a good place to hide an original.

There are many ways to “conceal” (3680) things.  We wrap packages when we are giving gifts.  We put small items under the seat of the car.  If we are wealthy enough to have anything of high value we can use a safe deposit box.  My daughter hides the cookies behind the vegetables.  In many cases they are only hidden from someone who does not really want them.  You can find them if you are serious.  That is why we sometimes get better results to God’s wisdom when we don’t wave it under people’s noses.

So?  If door to door witnessing doesn’t seem to be working, try to live in such a way that people wonder what your secret is.
