(Pro 26:6 KJV) He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage.
One application this might have is being careful whom we vote for or appoint to office. I sometimes wonder what kind of people elect some of the people in congress. I wonder if the voters in their districts are all on some kind of dole. I wonder if the election process is totally corrupted. I even wonder if some people are just plain stupid.
When we look at people running for office we need to take into consideration their basic abilities but we also need to take a strong look at their moral fiber. One of the big questions we have is, “What if no choice is morally strong?”
So? We are blessed to live in a representative democracy with free elections. As good as that is we need to always make sure that our confidence is in God and His power, not the people we vote for. Corruption is a part of the political process but time is on God’s side.
