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.

Not a Good Ratio

(Pro 28:2 KJV)  For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.

Do you ever look at your choices on a ballot and feel nothing but despair?  I think part of what is being stated here is that having a majority of self-centered egotists running for office or being in power is not unusual.  It is something we can expect.  Then when we find someone of “understanding” (995) we tend to wonder if it is true.  

Sometimes we need to look past the surface or the screaming of the media.  I think we have all met people who look suspicious on first meet but in time show a depth that we need.

So?  Do your homework, vote and speak up.  If you believe someone has the qualities needed then let others know.  Keep in mind that applies to the church board as much as the president of the United States.
