(Proverbs 10:14 KJV) Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
As I read this today the picture came to mind of a squirrel running around burying nuts. I have also heard of hoards of nuts stored in hollow trees. Is it true or just a cartoon meme? My Bible study today involved a quest through Google. Evidently scientists don’t have much to do because there have actually been studies done on this topic. Different squirrels have different styles but the experts have determined that they remember where they put their nuts.
One interesting point made was that some squirrels will dig up and re-bury their caches to see if the nuts are still fresh and refresh their memory about where they were stored. If it works for squirrels then maybe it would work for the “wise” (2450). You can’t remember what you never learned. At the same time a shelf full of books getting dusty doesn’t necessarily make for an informed citizen or believer.
A dusty Bible is even worse.
So? Are you smarter than a fifth grade squirrel? Prove it.
