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 21:16 KJV)  The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

One of the debates going on in the Christian community is whether we have free will or not.  Actually the same debate goes on in secular disciplines.  Are we programmed at birth or can we make choices that influence our destiny?  I believe the concept of the tabula rasa is not in fashion now.  Knowledge of the DNA in each cell tells us that there are certain things built in.  Parents with more than one child quickly see that they are usually different at birth.

What this verse is pointing out is we have something to say about whether we stay on the narrow way and enter the narrow gate that Jesus spoke of or “wander” (8582) off on our own.  It also reminds us that our path determines our eternal destiny.

So?  Wake up and after you smell the roses make sure that you are on the right road.
