An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Reject Foolishness

(Pro 24:7 KJV)  Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.

Some people will never be able to understand the “wisdom” (2451) of God.  Such a person is described as a “fool” (191).  It kind of brings to mind the chicken and the egg question.  Which comes first?

The definition of fool is interesting.  It involves despising wisdom, mocking when guilty, being quarrelsome and licentious.  That is a good description of the typical celebrity or politician.  It should not describe the people of God.

So?  Does wisdom appeal to you?  The problem isn’t with the wisdom.  Fortunately the fool can be cured.  Unfortunately he doesn’t want to be.

Sadly, we know which the world has most of these days.

The only thing the world and wisdom seem to have in common is the letters "w" and "d."

Grace and peace.
