(Pro 10:26 KJV) As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.
If you didn’t notice, it is the people who trust the “sluggard” (6102) that pay the price for his sloth. I am hoping that these people sent him in error. Maybe they did not know he was this way. If they did then why would they be surprised.
We have a tendency to think we are immune to stupidity. Have you ever been camping and sitting around the campfire? The smoke is kind of romantic until the wind shifts and it gets in your eyes. It can be a real awakener. I am not a wine drinker but I understand that wine can turn into vinegar. That must be an eye opener.
So? What you do is avoid smoke and don’t drink vinegar. I guess the same must go for some kind of people.
