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.

We Need to Stretch

(Pro 29:1 KJV)  He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

This hits home as I shuffle through old age.  As we get older we tend to get less flexible in our joints and our opinions.  Physically that is made worse by a sedentary life style.  That is why seniors are urged to learn some stretching exercises and then actually put them in practice.  Spiritually there are parallels.  

The spiritual exercises don’t really change when we get older.  Personal and corporate worship are key.  The worship elements of prayer, scripture and contemplation are never out of style.  

So?  No matter what age you are you need exercise.  That goes double with us elderly citizens.
