The book of Proverbs has some of the most profound words. This book filled with wisdom and understanding. So much can be related to these days and times.
There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.
There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
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.
The leech has two daughters.
‘Give! Give!’ they cry.
“There are three things that are never satisfied,
four that never say, ‘Enough!’:
the grave, the barren womb,
land, which is never satisfied with water,
and fire, which never says, ‘Enough!’
Looking at our world today the latter verses seem to fit very close to the part of our society that continually want instant satisfaction (no earning, no working for anything). The reference of the barren womb means that this generation will always have an insatiable need for wanting it all now. The land that is never satisfied with water refers to the very same thing. I want what I want now and do not care how, or what I have to do to get it. Therefore the fire never says enough!
We as believers of the most high, know that this type of being will exhaust all resources including man. We have to pray. Keep our hearts in the right place. Listen to that quiet whisper. Be obedient to God, never man.
