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 26:4 KJV)  Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.

I wonder if this isn’t a back door approach to conformity.  There are many things that we do to fit in and they are harmless.  Many clothing styles are just a matter of not looking a different strange than those around us.  One year sushi is in.  The next year it is probiotics.  That one my spell-checker doesn’t even recognize.  

Other times we endorse, support and perpetuate foolishness.  Certain behaviors become ingrained in our personality and effect our character.  I am convinced a glass of wine with dinner does not send you to hell.  Hanging around in a bar with your drinking buddies could also be survived but the tendency that is developed in us can make us open to other problems.  It can make us less resistant to temptation and gradually dull out minds to the things of God.

So?  Each is an individual.  We must make our choices.  Some choices tend to direct us to the next choice.  Be thoughtful and prayerful.
