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.

Check Your Report Card

(Pro 10:23 KJV)  It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.

I find that as I grow older I am less interested in “sport” (7814).  My interest has declined as I played less.  About the only sport I participate in is golf and I have never spent time watching it.  If you consider Candyland a sport then I would say I will soon be a part of the team again.  Personally I would consider that closer to the “fool” (3684) than “wisdom” (2451).  

What does take my time and focus is things that I am interesting in.  I heard a sermon once where the pastor said you could tell a persons passion by looking at their check book.  Today that would need to be revised to your monthly debit card report.  The concept applies to other areas of life.  Have you ever known someone who was too tired to get to church but was willing to go out to lunch or go shopping on the same day?  Priorities and first loves.

So?  So often it isn’t the words we use but the actions we perform that define who we are.  If our family can see it you might as well assume that God also notices.
