Rule of 2-3-4

A freeloader has twin daughters named “Gimme” and “Gimme more.”

Three things are never satisfied, no, there are four that never say, “That’s enough, thank you!”— hell, a barren womb, a parched land, a forest fire.

(Proverbs 30:15-16, MSG)

Three things amaze me, no, four things I’ll never understand— how an eagle flies so high in the sky, how a snake glides over a rock, how a ship navigates the ocean, why adolescents act the way they do.

(Proverbs 30:18-19, MSG)

Three things are too much for even the earth to bear, yes, four things shake its foundations— when the janitor becomes the boss, when a fool gets rich, when a prostitute is voted “woman of the year,” when a “girlfriend” replaces a faithful wife.

(Proverbs 30:21-23, MSG)

There are three solemn dignitaries, four that are impressive in their bearing— a lion, king of the beasts, deferring to none; a rooster, proud and strutting; a billy goat; a head of state in stately procession. 

(Proverbs 30:29-31, MSG)

I pray none of us succumb to the rule of 2-3-4
