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.

Info Wars

(Pro 17:4 KJV)  A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

As I read this a lot of current discussions came to mind about how you can’t believe anything you read or hear in the public square today.  Today I came across an article that said Duck Duck Go, an internet search engine that people had been going to in order to avoid the political slant of Google, was now going to start censoring.  Again, that was consistent with what people had been telling me who had been researching.  I am not sure why this would surprise us or if it should.  As the molders of news and information move away from acknowledging God and His standards, it is something we should assume.

Some people think the end is coming and are into being preppers.  I might suggest that we also start stocking up on truth and sharpening our discernment for falsehood.

So?  Make sure you start with the word.  That will make it possible for you to have an unchanging standard to compare to what you hear.  It may not work in your favorite sour dough recipe but it will work in how you set your priorities and treat those around you.
