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.

Don’t Be a Puppy

(Pro 21:2 KJV)  Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.

There is a reminder in this verse and it is at the beginning.  We are reminded that we tend to see things through our own experiential filters.  Those filters are woven naturally of pain and emotion.  Maybe you are different but I tend to consult the facts in follow-up.  This is why it is so important to keep in touch with the heart and mind of God.  It helps us keep on the same page.

The second part points out that God can see better than we can.  What I pick up from other places is that I can get a better idea of what He sees by study and meditation on His word.  I may not know all that He knows but I can know the principles and standards by which He judges.

So?  Trust.  That is a basic ingredient, but don’t assume that means turning off your mind or your need to understand.  If God had wanted mindless robots He would have made up puppy dogs instead of human infants marked by His image.
