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.

Let Your Meow Be Meow

(Pro 17:7 KJV)  Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.

One of the joys of grandchildren, and children I guess, is the process of language development.  Our youngest is at the stage where he substitutes sounds that are easy to say for harder words.  It is hard to tell the difference between “meow” for cat and something screeched out that represents a fire engine.  The older one is attempting to use big words even when she doesn’t know what they mean.  

With children it is fun.  If we go either way it can get embarrassing.  

So?  Let your speech be simple.  If we try to impress we might succeed but not the way we intended.
