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.

Drawing Lines

(Pro 22:2 KJV)  The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.

So many things are pulling us apart as a nation.  We have a new racism trying to divide us.  We are turned against each other on taxing the “rich”.  We have government policies pushing to force communities to accept public housing.  We have the effort to marginalize people who have not had the government mandated drug doses.  We need to embrace this reminder:  God made us all.

Does that mean we should let child abusers work in our nursery?  Don’t be simple minded.  Does it mean that people who can’t count should be given positions in a bank.  What have you been drinking?  Does it mean that practicing homosexuals should be preaching in our churches?  A pox upon you.  Does it mean that we are to care about people even when they have those problems.  Yes.

So?  Don’t let artificial divisions keep us from caring about each other.  God loved sinners enough for Jesus to go to the cross.  That does not mean He will allow the unrepentant to spend eternity with Him.
