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.

Glory Pills

(Pro 2:1 KJV)  My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

How do we “receive” (3947) the wisdom that God wants us to have?  It would be great if there was some form of spiritual osmosis in which we could set a Bible on the table by our recliner and while be take a nap all that glorious truth slips into our minds.  How about the ability to sit in church “listening” to a sermon while our minds were on where to go for lunch and by some mystical process our soul was enriched with truth.  I could go for a glory pill that, taken once a day, would enrich my understanding of the things of God.

It will never happen.  

So?  If you want to receive what God is offering you have to really listen and engage.  The promise is there.  So is the demand.
