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.

Deliberate Focus

(Pro 4:20 KJV)  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

Many homes have somewhere in the house where a Bible verse, or part of a verse, is displayed in some fashion.  For the most part we never look at it or think about what it says.  It does not do any good to dress like the Amish if you don’t look in the mirror and remind yourself of why you are dressing that way.  It doesn’t do any good to carry your Bible to church if you are not going to open it and hold the preacher accountable.

We must deliberately focus.

I have pictures of my grandchildren all over the place.  It is not a decorative device.  It is so that I can be reminded of why I must set the example.  Sure, I get warm fuzzies looking at their smiling faces.  I really like the serious looks.  That is all good but I need to remember why I have these pictures and not the ones that came in the frames.

So?  Focus.  Pay attention.  Find ways to remind yourself to wake up and meditate on the roses.  It has eternal importance.
