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.

Charts for Tomorrow

(Pro 10:14 KJV)  Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.

Two reasons to “store up” (6845) wisdom comes to mind.  First, we storehouse the wisdom because it is necessary for us to make decisions.  Second, we don’t waste it because we might need to share it with someone else some day.  

The first is an obvious behavior.  We read, listen, think, pray and the product of that is a deeper grasp of the God we worship and what He expects of us.  Just as a scientist might depend on the laws of physics to conduct research and an engineer to design a building, we depend on the laws of scripture to determine how to build our lives.

So?  It is hard to take a long trip without a map.  Some routes I can do because I have been over them so many times but into uncharted territory I would only be asking for trouble.  So be aware that there is adventure and uncharted territory ahead.
