PERSONAL: Before I continue with today’s post on Proverbs I wanted to tell a personal story which illustrates some of the focus of Proverbs, much other scripture and the problem in the COG Groups today.
Many years ago my wife and I applied for a job managing a government building. We were well qualified and immediately had a good rapport with the interviewer, being able to answer all their questions correctly and amicably. We did not get the job!
We had wanted this particular job and were disappointed, however by analyzing the interview we learned an important lesson. This may help those out job hunting and as we are hopefully all seeking a “job” in the Kingdom of God, it should help us in understanding the kind of kings and priests that Jesus Christ wants working for him.
At one point in the interview we were asked what we would do in a particular situation. Eager to show off my knowledge and impress them, I said that we would do this and this and this. My answer was CORRECT but it was THE WRONG ANSWER!
The answer being sought was: “I would follow your policy on the matter”!
These folks would be paying someone to manage a huge building and they had a right to have their decades long established policies learned and followed!
THINK! How much more do the Father and Christ have the right to KNOW that their policies of countless millennia, are being followed by candidates for a “job” assisting them and affecting the lives of millions?
If you want to rule, you must learn to live an example of true godliness; and to teach and rule in a godly manner; or we will not get the “job”.
