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 18:2 KJV)  A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.

Have you ever been in a group discussion or even a two-way conversation and found your eyes glazing over because someone is stepping far over the line.  I refer to the line of pompous certainty.  They drone on and on as if we cared about their opinion.  Sometimes we do.  Sometimes what they share can strike a button we need pushed.  For that reason we keep listening and trying to stay awake.  We have all been there.

What this verse is reminding us of is that we are sometimes that eye glazer.  Let’s face it.  People don’t always want to hear what we have to say.  The is even more of an insight when we are saying it for the fifth time.

So?  Don’t be a droner.  Don’t be an eye-glazer.  Listen, learn, and stay out of trouble.
