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.

Secrets We Don’t Need to Know

(Pro 13:7 KJV)  There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

What is the dividing line between honesty and deceit?  I can see some real problems with filling out a credit application and exaggerating your resources.  It is probably harder to do today than it used to be, but if you can’t game the system you probably are not really trying.  

I wonder if the ones acting poor are doing the “woe is me” routine that we hear so often.  You know how often you hear from people about their lack of funds.  Usually the ones who are really in trouble don’t talk about it.

So?  Beware of people who try to convince you either way.  Be honest but realize that people around you don’t need to know how much you can pay for a car or if you had to buy the store brand of green beans for your casserole this week.
