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.

Providence and Physics

(Pro 4:22 KJV)  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

We have a tendency to separate the metaphysical and the physical.  This book is about wisdom.  We think of wisdom as great thoughts and principles, situated in ivory towers, examined at our leisure.  That is all true and yet nothing could be farther from the truth.  Wisdom is not reserved for introspective examination.  It is meant to be applied.  This verse points that out.

Wisdom is for the whole “flesh” (body NASB) (1320).  It delivers results.  The results are generally summed up as “health” (4832).  Sometimes the results are pure providence.  Sometimes it is simply physics.  Either way it is still results.  Remember that Providence designed physics.

So?  Many people fit exercise into their daily schedule.  It isn’t just because they like exercise.  They also like the results.  Schedule some worship time seeking wisdom.  It pays dividends.
