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.

Holiday Adjectives

(Pro 2:16 KJV)  To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

I am reminded of the importance of adjectives.  Remember that an adjective is a word that modifies a noun.  Here the noun is “woman” (802).  This is a basic Hebrew word that is used 776 times in the Old Testament.  The overwhelming translations are variations of “woman” and “wife”.  It is a noble, honorable word, then you add the adjective and it changes the whole formula.  It is kind of like putting salt in the sugar bowl.  By the time you wake up to reality, it is too late.

Keep in mind that most sin involves actions that God has blessed being put in motion at the wrong time, place or target.  I have said it before.  I will say it again.  Satan takes God’s blessings and perverts them into destruction.  You can apply that in the Christmas season.  It can effect the gifts you buy and why you give them.  It can make the music a blessing or a desensitizing dirge.  

So?  Check your adjectives.  Make sure that the modifiers in your life are righteous.
