(Pro 5:23 KJV) He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
“I didn’t know!” We have all heard it. We have all used it. Sometimes it is even true. One big question is, “Why?” Why are some “without” (lack NASB) (369) the necessary “instruction” (4148)? I give open note quizzes. The students can use anything they have written down themselves. I always have students who miss all the questions. There are a number of reasons.
Some didn’t bring their notes. Some didn’t take any notes. Some don’t even bother to read the questions. Never is the problem that they did not have an opportunity to know.
The failure described here is in that category. We all make choices. Wrong choices here lead to death.
So? Are you paying attention? This is more serious than a weekly quiz. This has to do with eternity.
