Proverbs 30:18-20 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid. Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.
Agur stood in absolute amazement of some things he had witnessed on this earth. He watched, as the majestic eagle would open its large wings, allowing it to soar almost effortlessly across the sky with no trace of its flight.
He was taken by the way, in which a snake, with no legs, could move its body back and forth to slither across a rock with no apparent discomfort or damage, and left no visible trail behind.
He looked on with wonderment at how a large heavy wooden vessel loaded with cargo could stay afloat on the waves of the water. In addition, how the wake of this vessel, which was visible, soon would disappear back into the flow of the water and be gone.
He seemed in awe of how man could charm a woman, their two hearts melt into one, but then looking back at the romance, it seemed as though it was always meant to be.
As breathtaking as these things were and amazed as he was at them, he found a great sense of confusion as to how an adulterous woman could commit her sin and have no remorse. As though she had only done what was natural.
Agur might have a heart attack today if he were to look around at how some people treat sin. Regarding it, as though it were not really sin, saying rather, it is a mistake, a lifestyle, or it’s just the way I am. In Eccl. 12:14 it says, “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Amazing huh!
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
God gave us so much good at which we should all be amazed. The birth of a child, the love of parents, and nature itself. What can we give back to God for His wonderful gifts to us? We can give Him an obedient heart full of wonder in Him.
