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.

Moving away from the Honeycomb

(Pro 27:7 KJV)  The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.

Israel went through a constant cycle.  I have seen it presented as an observation in general.  Bad times bring repentance.  Repentance brings changes in behavior.  Changes in behavior bring about good times.  Good times make people stop doing the good things and bad times result.  Israel went from disaster to blessing and back again.  We in the United States have been going through some really good times if you consider history and the rest of the world.  Now the debauchery sets in.

So?  God will notice.  He will respond.  We are not His chosen people but He has blessed us as a nation because we had a sizable minority that believed and lived what they believed.  As that minority becomes ever more minor there will come a point where it all falls apart.  God is watching.  Each of us need to be doing our part before it falls around our ears.
