30 vs. 7-9
Two things I ask of
you; deny them not
to me before I die:
Remove far from
me falsehood and
lying; give me neither
poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food
that is needful for me,
lest I be full and deny
you and say, “Who is
the LORD?” or lest I
be poor and steal and
profane the name of
Agur the author of this Proverb demonstrates great wisdom as he
asks two things of the Lord. These are not for personal gain but for a
deepening in his relationship with the Lord.|
|(1) ||Remove falsehood and lying
— that is to take these away from me as
we would take a harmful object away from a baby or small child. This
is internal within our heart and mind, that we may be pure before
the Lord. We do not remain empty vessels but our heart of stone is
to be replaced with truth with a pure heart, replaced with Christ, that
we may have an honest heart before the Lord.|
|(2)||Don’t give me too much that I might put my trust in the things that
I have. These are the external things that we possess and if we are
not careful those same things end up possessing us. It is easy for
us to place our trust in things that we have, believing that they are
meeting our needs, and the result of this is stated in verse 9 that we
end up saying “Who is the Lord?”|
In all things we are to praise the Lord for what He has done for us in
salvation and for His provisions to us
that meet our daily needs.
Jesus says in Matthew 6:33 ”Seek
first the kingdom of God and His
righteousness and these things will
be added unto you.”
This is a wonderful promise that we
should not only believe in word but
demonstrate in our daily life.
