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.

Simply Open

(Pro 1:4 KJV)  To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.

I am sure I have noted it before but one of the meanings of “simple” (naive NASB) (6612a) is “open minded”.  We live in a culture that has made being open minded a great virtue.  The reason that the pagans around us like that understanding is that it means they can fill the open minds with all the mush at their command.  It has the idea of a wide eyed Dorothy stepping out of black and white Kansas into the Technicolor of Oz and standing, mouth agape, staring around her.  Proverbs is the force that will pull aside the curtain and expose the wizards of the left.

I remember when the open school concept was the latest rage.  Walls were removed.  You could see across the entire building.  You were also distracted by everything that went by.  It did not help to educate the kids.

So?  Accept that there are reasons for walls, doors and glass in the windows.  Proverbs is to teach us where to put them and when to open them.  Pay attention.
