The Strained Eyes of Humans
Would you consider the eyes of mankind? They wander and weave through life, straining to pursue desires that satisfy a man's heart. Even the wisest of kings, Solomon, denied his eyes nothing, he admits he exercised no self-restraint.
I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure. (Ecclesiastes 2:l0a)
Below are four fresh proverbs that briefly examine life in a demanding world. These, just maybe, were too modelled by King Solomon nearly 3000 years ago.
- I rush past my Creator to gather from mans' creations, and so sacrifice the knowledge of the Holy on the altar of gathering the hollow.
- Better a prayer from a still heart than a speeding life.
- Relationships have become commodities rather than commitments.
- The spirit and soul receive permission to be active when the body is not.
I wonder if King Solomon even reflected this way? REMEMBER:
What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight. (Luke 16:15b)
