Chapter-a-Day Proverbs 30

Books The skeptic swore, "There is no God! No God!—I can do anything I want! I’m more animal than human; so-called human intelligence escapes meProverbs 30:1 (TM)

I’ve never been able to get this one. I remember teachers who taught this in the classroom. Even if I wasn’t a follower of Christ, I would still believe that there is a God. It seems to me that being an atheist requires as much, if not more, faith than being a Christian. To be an atheist you must believe that (1) matter spontaneously came into existence out of nothing (try and prove that scientifically) and (2) life spontaneously sprang from matter (once again, defying the very laws of nature).

I liken those who would utter the thoughts of today’s verse to the rebellious teenager who, when asked who his parents are, replies, "I have no parents."

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Proverbs 30”

  1. 24-28 There are four small creatures,
    wisest of the wise they are—
    ants—frail as they are,
    get plenty of food in for the winter;
    marmots—vulnerable as they are,
    manage to arrange for rock-solid homes;
    locusts—leaderless insects,
    yet they strip the field like an army regiment;
    lizards—easy enough to catch,
    but they sneak past vigilant palace guards.
    Wow, what we can learn from these little creatures. Yet, Christians sit in this world thinking, “I am only one person, what can I do?” Sitting around contemplating it doesn’t get it done 🙂
