Daily Diet – Proverbs 27:20

Proverbs 27:20 [KJV]

Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.

Proverbs 27:20 [NET]

​​​​​​​As Death and Destruction are never satisfied, ​​​​​​so the eyes of a person are never satisfied.

Proverbs 27:20 [NLT]

Just as death and destruction are never satisfied, so human desire is never satisfied.


Key: Are you perturbed why humans are insatiable? Have you sacrificed all and yet the recipient isn’t showing gratitude? Our bible verse of today answers these mind boggling questions. No matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can never satisfy human. Some parents feel bad when their children appear not to appreciate their sacrifices; the truth is they are just human.

Dear reader, do the best you can, keep doing good; your heavenly Father will reward you. Heb 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

Jesus Christ performed miracles, fed the multitudes, turned water to wine yet He was crucified. Now He is seated at the right-hand side of God in heaven; the reward of the price He paid.

Prayer: Father, do not let my labour of love be in vain.


Have a blessed weekend ahead,
