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.

(Pro 28:19 KJV)  He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.

Those of us who are not farmers might miss that tilling is not planting.  It is a process that loosens the soil and prepares it for planting.  As I did a little research, one source said that if you did things right you could even skip a year.  Think about how this might apply to something like evangelism.  We should be preparing the soil by living righteous lives.  In the same way, how many restaurants are opened because someone has impressed people with their cooking?  

So?  We need to look at our lives as an investment in the future.  As I write I think of all the time I spend on meaningless tasks or leisure activities.  I need to look at my day.
