A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Reid Griffin

Reid Griffin

My name is Reid Griffin, and I have been married to my grace-filled wife, Jenny, for 17 years. We have two kids: Grant (12) and Reese (10).

We started coming to Watermark six years ago when my own lack of humility led to a hurting marriage, and I was told by a friend that we should start attending re|engage (Watermark's marriage ministry). God healed our marriage through re|engage and changed the whole trajectory of our family. Currently, Jenny and I serve as leaders of a Foundation Group (Watermark’s ministry for newly married couples).

Proverbs 30:21-33

21 Under three things the earth trembles;
under four it cannot bear up:
22 a slave when he becomes king,
and a fool when he is filled with food;
23 an unloved woman when she gets a husband,
and a maidservant when she displaces her mistress.

24 Four things on earth are small,
but they are exceedingly wise:
25 the ants are a people not strong,
yet they provide their food in the summer;
26 the rock badgers are a people not mighty,
yet they make their homes in the cliffs;
27 the locusts have no king,
yet all of them march in rank;
28 the lizard you can take in your hands,
yet it is in kings' palaces.

29 Three things are stately in their tread;
four are stately in their stride:
30 the lion, which is mightiest among beasts
and does not turn back before any;
31 the strutting rooster, [1] the he-goat,
and a king whose army is with him. [2]

32 If you have been foolish, exalting yourself,
or if you have been devising evil,
put your hand on your mouth.
33 For pressing milk produces curds,
pressing the nose produces blood,
and pressing anger produces strife. (ESV)


[1] 30:31 Or the magpie, or the greyhound; Hebrew girt-of-loins
[2] 30:31 Or against whom there is no rising up


Proverbs 30:5

Every word of God proves true;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
