Isaiah 1:3

What do some animals possess that people lack


3 The ox [showr] knoweth [yada`] his owner, [qanah] and the
[chamowr] his master’s [ba`al] crib: [‘ebuwc] but Israel [Yisra’el] doth not know, [yada`] my
[`am] doth not consider. [biyn] KJV-Interlinear


3 “An
ox knows its owner, And a donkey its master’s manger, But Israel does not know,
My people do not understand.” NASB

People have souls. People have brains with intellectual capabilities of logic and reason. People have far better potential and abilities to differentiate the truth from the lies of the world. People have far more perceptive abilities in life and can plan and prepare for the unseen, or for what they know or believe is coming.

Animals on the other hand, possess none of these advanced characteristics, possessing only the wits of natural instinct that God has given them.

And yet, the lowly animal knows from where it comes, and to whom it belongs, and how to get out of danger or even out of bad weather. Animals can prepare out of instinct and not much more than that, yet they cope with life and survive throughout the ages, without intellect, without technology, without sophisticated plans and means.

The ox is a strong worker, yet dumb. The donkey is dull and stupid.

And even these two lowly animals show more loyalty and common sense toward their masters, than do people toward God, who created them.

Man is nothing more than an essence of life inserted into dust, yet man feels nearly invincible and total control over their own life and future. Presuming that no one and nothing is needed to help them get along in life or in history.

Man believes that he is here by accident yet destined to rule the galaxies. And man has not even yet learned to control his own planet.

With all of the proofs that exist right before our own eyes, with all of the repetitions of life and death in our history, very few of the trillions of people born into life, have figured out what life is all about. And fewer still know that God is there carrying the weight of history lest humanity would have failed long ago.

The high and the mighty rule and walk through life in their arrogance, while the simplest of animals have in fact, more use of sense than God gave to man.

God has a plan for each persons life. That plan is a perfect plan and is designed to bring out the best possible destiny for each individual.

Man on the other hand tries to make events fit into self-prophecy, rather than discovering true prophecy as and after, its events unfold.

Animals know little if anything about the tomorrows that lie ahead, and yet they suffer no delusions about who and what they are.

Man has all sorts of advantages over animals, and yet man can’t seem to get even his own history sorted out.


Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

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 each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
