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.

 Light Attitudes

(Pro 13:9 KJV)  The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

This chapter in Proverbs, and probably most chapters, has a list of contrasts.  Many, if not most, are a contrast that comes down to attitude.  How do you look at life?  That is established by how you look at the day.  Or is it the other way around?  It doesn’t matter.  The point is you decide what kind of illumination you want on what you face.  

Take a simple flashlight.  My grandchildren love to play with them even in the middle of the day.  At night they can keep you from stubbing your toe, stepping on a scorpion or missing a stair.  They can also be used to terrorize.  How?  Go in a dark room in front of a mirror, put the flashlight below your chin and shine it up over your face so that the shadows create a wicked result.  Same light.  Different angle.

So?  You have heard it before and will hear it again.  We can decide what our attitude is going to be.  Start with the encouragement of worship involving praise and thanksgiving.  It will make you have a different attitude toward the call about your auto warrantee.
