An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Happy Fools

(Pro 15:21 KJV) Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.

How does one become a fool?  I often wonder, only partially tongue-in-cheek, how people who seem to be intelligent and decent can disagree with me on so many issue.  If you have ever seen a sonogram of your unborn child, how could you even consider an abortion?  If you have ever cleaned a gun how can you believe that so many people shoot themselves while doing so?  In current affairs, how can you watch a city burning and talk about peaceful protesters? 

For some people it is a condition of birth.  We don’t like to admit it but some people are born owing cans to the six-pack and they never catch up.  Others are conditioned by their parents.  Children that are stuck in a baby carrier with a bottle stuck in their mouth are further behind with every gulp compared to a child being held and interacted with by a loving mother.  And to be honest, I think some people choose to be fools because they think it will benefit them.

So?  What is my excuse, you say?  I sometimes wonder.  Until I know more I will seek to follow the life of righteousness.
