The Fool(s)


I wasn’t going to post today, but then I read this:

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.          Proverbs 18:2 (ESV)

Does this not perfectly describe our totally insane world?

As I read the highlights of various news websites this morning, I was once again struck by the idiocy of high-ranking, prominent people – leaders of countries, even – who spout off bizarre opinions that anyone with a brain would discard in a second. At least, I hope they would. And once again, I realized this: We are surrounded by fools.

The fools aren’t interested in understanding. They just want to talk and make sure everyone hears them because, of course, they are right and everyone else is wrong. And if, by some remarkable chance, they discover that their opinion is faulty, they will never admit it.

Want to see what else the Bible has to say about this?

The wise are glad to be instructed, but babbling fools fall flat on their faces.             Proverbs 10:8 (NLT)

God has provided a solution to all of the lunacy out there. Pray for wisdom – His wisdom.

Seek His direction.

Follow Him.

Look for godly understanding in a very ungodly world.

Don’t be a babbling fool. Please.
