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.

No Mystery

(Pro 7:25 KJV)  Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.

How do you think this young man responded to this warning?  My guess is that he was just like us.  He ignored the word of the wise.  Do you think that he didn’t already know that sneaking off with another man’s wife was wrong?  Really?  Keep in mind he was not raised watching modern television and attending public schools.  He was raised in a Jewish culture.  He probably could have repeated the Ten Commandments to you including the one that involves adultery.

He made a choice and he wasn’t in a listening mood.  

So?  This can obviously be said about the many choices we make that are less destructive than adultery.  The general problem is not that we don’t know but that we choose.  Choose wisely.
