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.

Need to Know

(Gen 2:2 KJV)  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

(Proverbs 5 also read)

This verse tells us that God finished His work and “rested” (7673a) on the seventh day.  That much is obvious.  My mind is never satisfied with the obvious.  Questions seem to be lurking beneath the surface all the time.  I want to know, “When did God stop resting?”  Or I guess we could wonder if He stopped.  

Interesting, at least to me.

But this brings up a lesson that is of importance.  To my knowledge the Bible does not tell us when or if God stopped resting.  That gives us a choice.  We could consider it a point that is of no importance.  Don’t get worked up over it.  If God thought you needed to know, He would have told you.  You can ask Him during celestial choir practice breaks.  Or it means you are free to speculate as long as you don’t violate other things that are clearly taught.  Or you can write a book.

So?  The Bible does not tells us everything, only what we need to know.  Think about that a little.
