Only My Daily Bread 30:7-9

Only My Daily Bread
Proverbs 30:7-9

Two things I ask of you, Lord;
do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, “Who is the Lord?”
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God.

PCdc Commentary

Just meet my needs for the day, Lord.
Evil could result from having
either too much or too little.

Who dares to offer this prayer?

Do Not Add To The Scriptures 30:5-6

Do Not Add To The Scriptures
Proverbs 30:5-6

Every word of God is flawless;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
Do not add to his words,
or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.

PCdc Commentary

Many false religions have been founded
by adding to the Scriptures.
They will not be listed here,
but take an honest look at your religion.

The first person to add to the scriptures
was Eve in Genesis 3:2-3:

The woman said to the serpent,
“We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,
but God did say,
‘You must not eat fruit from the tree
that is in the middle of the garden,
and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

God did not say not to TOUCH the fruit.
Eve touched it and she did not die,
then she ate it and died.

Adding to the Scriptures brings
God’s rebuke to you,
and proves you to be a liar.

The Name Of The Son 30:4

The Name Of The Son
Proverbs 30:4

Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
Whose hands have gathered up the wind?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is the name of his son?
Surely you know!

PCdc Commentary

Seriously, what is the name of His son?

The Lord Is My Shepherd …
Who is the Lord?
Who is the Great Shepherd?

The Knowledge Of The Holy One 30:1-3

The Knowledge Of The Holy One
Proverbs 30:1-3

This man’s utterance to Ithiel:
I am weary, God, but I can prevail.

Surely I am only a brute, not a man;
I do not have human understanding.

I have not learned wisdom,
nor have I attained to the knowledge of the Holy One.

PCdc Commentary

The wise never claim their wisdom,
because the wiser they become,
the more they recognize their foolishness.
