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.

How Much Does a Fool Weigh?

(Pro 27:3 KJV)  A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both.

The Bible says a lot about blessings.  People like that.  I like that.  It also says a lot about persecution and gives many examples.  Just one verse I read this morning,

(Psa 27:5 KJV)  For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
What this verse is pointing out is that much of the pressure we feel in life will be personal.  It will not just be economic, political or health issues.  It will often be people, “fools” (191) if you will.  Just because we are cautioned against calling people fools does not mean they do not exist or are even rare.  

So?  Keep your eyes fixed on the hope that is in us.  We may get loaded down but that just makes the Holy Spirit pump up the support.
