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.

Updates Provided

(Pro 4:18 KJV)  But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

Today I am thinking that this is a call to optimism.  It is not a call to be Pollyana.  It is not a call to be an ostrich.  It is a call to look to the future with confidence.

The “righteous” (6662) have a roadmap.  On the one side that gives us the right “path” (734) to follow.  On the other side it warns us of the things that are off the road.  Some of those things are neutral.  The only danger is that they might keep us from making progress.  Some of those things will be evil and by following the route spelled out for us we can avoid them.

So?  I would say the obvious road map is the Bible.  The book may have been printed years ago but it is like a constantly updated map on your phone only it has a God’s eye perspective.  You see, many things never really change.  You can paint it with fancy words but a pit is still a pit.  Stay alert.  Stay informed.  Stay on the path.
