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.

Worthless Wisdom

(Pro 5:20 KJV)  And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

Have you ever had someone tell you to consider the source?  Thus you would not ask someone for financial advice who is constantly going bankrupt.  Would you want the advice of someone with seven hundred wives on marriage?  Does Solomon come to mind?  He should.  I wonder if he wrote this very early in his life.  We find that by the end he was ignoring his own wisdom.

(1Ki 11:3 KJV)  And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
Solomon had all the information he needed to live a holy life.  He started out well with a special dispensation of wisdom.  He had it all.  He had the knowledge.  He had the wealth.  And he threw it away.

So?  You can either let this defeat you or you can let it remind you that God is quick to forgive those who repent and turn from their evil ways.  Choices, choices.
