May 1, 2021 – Proverbs 30-31

I thought, here at the end of Proverbs, that I would be writing about “the excellent wife” (31:10). But I came, quickly, across the words of Agur, which caught my attention: “Two things I ask of you . . . [the second being] 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 my God” (30:7-9).


I am reminded of the words of Jesus as he warns us against anxiety regarding life’s necessities: “Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’. . . your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:31-34). We all know, and have often sung, these words:


God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He’s so good to me.

He cares for me, He cares for me, He cares for me, He’s so good to me.
