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.

(Pro 16:12 KJV)  It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.

On Sunday the pastor got a bit off track and went down the trail of sexual sin.  Part of what he said dealt with homosexuality being an “abomination” (8441).  He was right but he was also a bit focused on one area of sin.  In Proverbs it also says that having dishonest scales is an abomination.  Here it talks about leaders who are following evil.  

This morning as I was thinking about the attributes of God, I was thinking about how different theological camps would pick different attributes as the most important.  Calvinists would pick sovereignty.  Wesleyans would pick holiness.  God, in the famous I AM passage, seemed to think that fact that He existed was important.

So?  This verse is a reminder of the holiness of God.  His expectation of high moral standards applies to everything we do and it applies to everyone.  That includes kings and presidents.  We need to expect it and demand it.  We certainly should try to vote it.
