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.

Today’s Headlines

(Pro 28:21 KJV)  To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

If there is any place in the Bible that would get you rejected, or cancelled in today’s jargon, it is this verse.  With all of the politically correct nonsense going on the believer should be standing up repeatedly and saying, “Not on my watch.”  Instead we seem to be going to sensitivity training and buying the whole litany of preferences.  The word for the day is intersectionality.  What it means is that you check off all the boxes that represent repression in your life and the more checks you get, the more worthy you are of special privileges.  

This is the opposite of God’s way of looking at things.   This literally means not to take into consideration the face of the person you are dealing with.  It is about treating each other fairly and honestly according to standards that do not change based on melanin or sexual confusion.

So?  Stand up and be counted before you no longer have a place to stand.
