Proverbs 30:18

There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not

Meditate wisely on four mysteries. Beyond human comprehension, they cause the mind to consider the Creator responsible for their unique properties. Beyond man’s ability to fully grasp or to duplicate, they humble the mind to admit the great need for wisdom.

The inspired prophet Agur used sets of four things to teach Ithiel and Ucal (Pr 30:1). God created these things with great wisdom, as He did the entire universe (Pr 8:22-31). Man cannot fully explain them, let alone duplicate them, so he should humbly admire them.

Admire the eagle; respect the snake; appreciate sailing; and consider emotional romance. God has made all things wonderful in their own time and place
