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.

Holy Moses

(Psa 90:1 KJV)  A Prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

(Proverbs 27 also read)

Everyone knows that David wrote the Psalms and Solomon wrote Proverbs.  Everyone.  Except those who are paying attention.  Notice what the beginning of this Psalm says, “A prayer of Moses...”  I assume that statements like this at the beginning of Psalms are in the actual Hebrew.  What difference does that make?  In this case it means just what it says, Moses wrote this Psalm.

The point here is that we are only supposed to make a statement a place to take a stand if it is clearly stated in the Bible.  Thus we don’t die on the hill of “Paul wrote Hebrews” or “infant baptism”.  

So?  Stick with what the Bible says.  It will be more than enough to make your day, or get you into hot water at church.
