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.

Mama Bear

(Pro 17:12 KJV) Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.

There are some bits of wisdom that have stood the test of time.  Staying far away from a mama bear and her babies is one of them.  Or at least you would think so but every once in awhile you see a picture on the internet that has some snowflake getting involved with a cub.  Evidently they didn’t get the message.  Or they could be like some people I know who believe the rules don’t apply to them.

Fools exist.  Frequently they breed new fools.  There are not enough mama bears around to teach them the error of their ways.  Just as you would not want to try to reason with a mama bear, it might be a waste of time to reason with a fool.

So?  You can pray for them.  You can live upright in front of them.  You can refuse to cooperate or participate.  You cannot reason.
