“The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spake unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal, surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man. I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy.
Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in His fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, if thou canst tell?
Every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him. Add thou not unto His words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” Proverbs 30:1-6 (KJB)
Just a few words concerning these verses;
- The teacher is wise in admitting he does not know: he is still a student;
- He is wise in pointing the student to the One who knows all things, and holds them in His hands, who has built/established all things;
- He – as a student – assures his students that the word of God is pure, and that He is a protector when we put our trust in Him;
- He also give warning of the reproof one would receive if adding to what God has said.
Let every teacher realize we are students of God’s word, that there are no all knowing Professors.
We do know that the Son’s name is Jesus the Christ, Son of the Living God (Matthew 16), and that He died, was buried, and He rose from that grave. Believe Him.
