11 When thou with rebukes [towkechah] dost correct [yacar] man ['iysh] for iniquity [`avon], thou makest his beauty [chamad] to consume away [macah] like a moth [`ash]: surely every man ['adam] is vanity [hebel]. Selah [celah]. KJV-Interlinear
11 When you discipline a man with rebukes for sin, you consume like a moth what is dear to him; surely all mankind is a mere breath! Selah ESV
Nothing shows the existence of a person as being nothing, like the discipline of God as it reveals, that nothingness.
Throughout our life, we adopt beliefs, we collect possessions, we develop attitudes, and all of them are for not.
When a moth gains access to beautiful clothing, it destroys that material slowly and quietly. A moth cares nothing for the beauty of the clothing, and has no concern for its value.
When confronted with genuine truth, which only comes from God, then everything that we hold near and dear, is revealed as having no value at all.
And until or unless, we are faced with Gods discipline, then we ourselves don’t see the worthlessness of our attitudes, of our non-truth beliefs, of the things that we possess, and even the way we perceive ourselves within the environment of society and this world.
Man is flesh and blood, man has phenomenal limitations. And yet in our arrogance we are blind and see nothing, until we are faced with the harsh realities of Gods reproof, of Gods correction, of God’s punishment.
Were it not for the corrections that God places before us, we would never see, nor even accept, the false that lies within us.
Just as a simple moth can make the most valuable and beautiful piece of material, useless, so too Gods correction can reveal the worthlessness and the futility of any and all things within this world.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
