2 For they
shall soon [m@herah] be cut down [namal] like
the grass [chatsiyr], and wither [nabel] as the green [yereq] herb [deshe']. KJV-Interlinear
2 For they
will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. ESV
Anyone who does not pursue their spiritual life, functions by default in the realm of evil. Unfortunately most folks live in this category. They see the spiritual treasure across the road, but they do not cross to possess it due to the traffic of life that interferes with that pursuit. It is easier to do nothing or to emphasize other matters from the world.
And that is the huge error of life.
The world is temporary. Its details are temporary. And thus all that is in the world will sooner or later fade and die and then be no more.
And here is the very verse to describe the pursuit of worldly things as opposed to the spiritual things of life.
The description is of a lush field of grass, growing tall and rich and full of vigor. But along comes a cutting tool which cuts the grass down.
Once cut down it withers and dies.
All things in this world will be cut down and then they will be no more.
Emphasis only on the details of life, no matter what they are, is a fools pursuit.
Ignoring the treasure of Bible doctrine, is a fools decision.
The things of the world will never enrichen you.
The things of this world will never satisfy you.
The things of this world will never bring contentment.
The things of this world will never add personal growth to you.
There is only one thing that will add to and complete your life, and that is Bible doctrine
