Today God has opened his word to me again.
12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, And yet are not washed from their filthiness. 13 There is a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up. 14 There is a generation whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, To devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.
Prov 30:12-14 (ASV)
Frankly, I got about 2 main things in this passage, one is Just don’t be prideful, always works right? two is just don’t sware, or just stop cursing, always worked before right?
What is the main thing you just saw me write? human effort! I’ll tell you now, it doesn’t work, you can’t just not do something, or, you can, but for sure that isn’t a lasting cure, the only lasting cure is Jesus the Christ! Or more accurately, his dying on the cross and in three days rising again interceding on our behalf before God the father and saving us all!!!
That just never gets old, does it? The Gospel, always new always fresh, always ready to save and protect, always ready to help you with your pride, always ready to stop you from cursing etc.
If you have any comments about the passage… please feel free to share them!
You are loved!
