(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.
