Putrid Before God
Proverbs 30:12 (KJB) There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
Agur gets straight to the point in this verse!
There are people who are right in their own eyes. They practice measuring themselves against the faults and fissures of others, rather than rightly measuring against the plumb line God established. This is called pride.
Pride is at work in the hearts and minds of many in this world.
What pride hearted people fail to realize is that there is NOTHING good in their own making. They are not pure and they certainly are not clean in the absence of the presence and power of God aw work in their life.
Only with the presence of God can they be found pure and spotless.
Left to themselves they are filthy, festering, and spiritually foul.
I pray your righteous standing came from God. He is the only one who is pure and perfect and standing spiritually tall. Otherwise you are found to be stained and soiled and out of spiritual fellowship with God.
