(Proverbs 26:5 KJV) Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.
“Fools” (3684) need to be kept in their place. I am sure there are many ways to do it but this verse seems to be telling us not to encourage their foolishness. This seems to be calling for us to get aggressive about keeping them from running away with the show.
What do you do when the fools outnumber you? What do you do when they are in charge? We can’t be aggressive in those circumstances but we are still called to be honest.
So? Pay careful attention to your situation. Truth does not change. When people will listen does.
