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.

Three or Four

(Pro 30:29 KJV)  There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going:

So are there only three or four things that are impressive in our world?  Obviously not.  We need to accept that there are places in the Bible that we read literary devices.  I have a friend who is big on “rightly dividing the word of truth”, II Timothy 2:15.  The problem is that he is the only one he thinks capable of doing that.  I have not asked him about this verse but if he felt it was some very subtle teaching that fit into his system, then that would be that.  I would be on the border of heresy.

So?  There are interpretations that are totally false.  There are others which differ and can be considered correct.  We will never totally agree.  We can’t agree on the best coffee or the healthiest diet.  I hear people split churches over the color of the carpet.  We need to learn to separate the important from the superfluous.  Three or four is not important.  The physical resurrection of Jesus is.
