In the proverbs we hear "If you are wise, you will heed my words". But Proverbs 30 presents us with the complete opposite. Agur desires that we understand who God is, and who we are in comparison.
To me, it is imperative that we get ourselves to nature to more fully understand. The Scriptures tell us that God has revealed himself in creation.
I shot this photograph a few years ago, standing at the rim of the Grand Canyon. When you are in the presence of this place, you are presented with immense awe. It puts you in the right mind to read something like Proverbs 30:1-4:
I am weary, O God, and worn out.
2 Surely I am too stupid to be a man.
I have not the understanding of a man.
3 I have not learned wisdom,
nor have I knowledge of the Holy One.
4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
Who has gathered the wind in his fists?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son's name?
Surely you know!
