Morning Thoughts for Every Day of the Year

PROVERBS 1:1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;

SOLOMON learned a great deal by experience. He put all the resources of this world to the test to see just what they would do for man. His proverbs are not therefore, mere bits of theory, like many wise words we see; they were all wrought out in the crucible of actual experience.

Some of his words mark dangers: Dont turn this way! Some of them point to the safe path: This is the way! Whatever he found in life he set down here for the benefit of those who would come after.

It is wonderful too, at how many points these proverbs touch life, and how intensely practical they are. To ponder them and to follow their instruction is to live well and grandly.

It is wonderful also that while Solomon himself wandered so far from God, there is not in all his writings a single word that excuses his sins. Everywhere he points away from the wrong path and to the right.

EVENING: LIFES POSSIBILITIES

THINK of all the magnificent powers God has put into these lives of ours. He has given us minds to think, to reason, to imagine, to roam amid the stars, to wander into the very borders of infinity, to climb the golden stairs of faith even into the midst of heavens brightness. He has given us hearts to feel, to suffer, to rejoice, to love. He has put into our beings the possibilities of the noblest achievements and the loftiest attainments. Oh, what a shame it is for one born to live in immortal glory, called to be a child of God, to become like the Son of God, yet to be content with a poor earthly life and to live without reaching up toward God and heaven!
