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.

Choice Fools

(Pro 26:1 KJV)  As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.

We are warned about calling someone a “fool” (3685).  

(Mat 5:22 KJV)  But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
At the same time we are here being warned against fools.  Maybe the warning is about going public with someone being a fool because of the possible backlash.  Proverbs makes a big deal about fools.  If you read on in this chapter you can see it is a theme.  

We are giving repeated warnings about trusting fools, arguing with fools, hiring fools.  What we need to remember is that in Proverbs fools are defined as people who have rejected the wisdom of God.  

So?  When you vote for or support anyone for a position you are expected to take a look at their spiritual life.  Often it will make no difference because all choices are fools.  In that case look for the one that is the least foolish.  If we want revival in our land we need to begin to take stands and make decisions based on God’s standards.
