(Pro 12:15 KJV) The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
One of the early titles for the church was the “way” (1870). I don’t know if there is any documentation of how this evolved. It may have come from Jesus’ statement,
(Joh 14:6 KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.It indicated that life had changed. No longer could we do our own thing. No longer could we follow mindlessly after the gurus of our culture. No more could we go forward without thinking. Now we had a path laid out for us, a path outlined by Jesus and reflected in the scriptures.
So? Wisdom is antithetical to foolishness. It chooses what Robert Frost labeled the “one less traveled”.
