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.

(Psa 120:6 KJV)  My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

(Proverbs 30 also read)

This Psalm is a reflection of how the author’s actions are so at odds with his desire.  In this verse he comes to one of the big reasons why he was having trouble:  His choice of friends.

When you hang around with people of a certain mindset you make accommodations.  You might remain silent when you should speak up.  You might tone down what you really believe.  Over a period of time this could well influence what you are really thinking and feeling.

So?  Pick your friends and associates wisely.  It may be necessary to think about looking for a different place to work.  It may cause you to avoid certain family get togethers.  Spiritual growth demands some hard choices and that more often than we like.
