So here Is an interesting question, since I am nearer to 100 than not, Ha! Here's the question. What do you call a 100-year-old frog? Yep you got it, An old croak. What a play on words. You have to admit it is a tough one especially being that this is a brand new month.


Monday 5/1


Prov. 30:17 "The eye that mocks his father, And scorns obedience to his mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out, And the young eagles will eat it."


In this verse the gatherer is continuing on in pursuing the odascity of a repulsive child to make light of his father the very person who provided for him & then disregarded the ultimate sacrifice of his mother the person who literally brought him life.


He then in the second part of this verse inferred just how these varied birds felt towards this person. The raven the overlord of the smaller species of birds, and the eagle, the master of birds who fly in the upper heights. Both were repulsed by this rebellious child, to the extent of striving to render him sightless.


The inference here in the first part of the verse is that, this child was so abhorent, that he wasn't granted a proper burial, which to the Jewish culture was the ultimate tragedy and disgrace. The concept being exposed here is that, due to this wayward, rebellious sons lifestyle, resulted in no one being concerned to show respect to his life or death, for that matter.


The continuing concept passed on, assumes that if he showed such ill repute for his parents, and then he went on to also live in this way in his life. To the extent that no one regarded his death or life by any person remaining alive as of value. Therefore, no one was concerned enough to see to his proper burial, which in the Jewish was the ultimate rejection.


So Go With God for all this verse lays out is the outcome of a life lived in rebellion. For a child to begin life rejecting & resenting either of his parents, and then continuing on in this road, brings this result. No one caring for his soul. However, we know from the rest of scripture that when anyone no matter how reprobate comes to our loving Father with repentance in his heart, our Father forgives him & returns benefit to a selfish, rebellious person. He alone can affirm that He is the lover of our very soul, regardless of the extent of our rebellion.


So my dear one we should take the time to reflect David's reflection on the works that our Father promises, "He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake."

Psa. 23:3.
