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 18:2 KJV) A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.

Proverbs is full of recurring themes.  This chapter mentions now important it is to listen more than we talk.  This verse points to a big part of the problem.  We all know people who talk too much.  We have all been guilty of the same thing.  Okay, maybe you haven’t but a lot of us have.  At the root of the problem is the root of sin:  Self interest.  Much of the sin in our lives is taking a blessing that God has created and turning it to selfish purposes.  

So?  Take a look at the conflicts of the past 24 hours.  I would imagine that if we are honest with ourselves we will find out that self-centeredness is involved.  I know we see it in the other guy but we might ask ourselves if he sees it in us too.
