(Proverbs 9:6 KJV) Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
Why do people get in destructive ruts? We do things that make life worse and we continue to do them. From my perspective that would include people that voted twice for Bill Clinton and Barak Obama. From yours it might be people who voted twice for George Bush. People don’t seem to learn.
I have tried manudo three times. Have I learned my lesson? I hope so, but hope springs eternal. People who have diabetes keep eating and living like couch potatoes. Then they wonder why they are going blind and having a foot amputated. Parents let their kids watch any TV, play any game, download any app, and listen to any music. Then they wonder why they are lazy and disrespectful.
So? Do a little thinking. When you find behavior that is destructive now or damning later, “forsake” (5800a) it. Change. Walk away. This verse says such decisions lead to life. The remote control is in your court.
