(Proverbs 10:23 KJV) It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
What is the OT concept of “sport” (7814)? It is interesting to me that the word is used in the King James Version of 1611. The idea of sports is not new or modern. So how did Solomon see it. First, note that it is not condemned categorically. Notice it is practiced in this verse by actions of both “wickedness” (2154) and “wisdom” (2451). The definition I have for this word is “laughter, laughing stock, mocking, derision.” That seems negative to me but so much of what goes on is based on context.
Sport is what you enjoy doing. If you are a “fool” (3684), then you enjoy doing evil. If you are “understanding” (8394) then you enjoy wisdom.
So? Check out your daily itinerary. What kind of activities do you enjoy. Maybe it is time to do some adjusting. Maybe it is time to do some repenting. Maybe it is time to let the Holy Spirit change your heart.
