“The Wise Fool…”

Blessings folk!

More on the Fool.
We do well to be reminded.
Be not the Fool.

True Believers are empowered to walk in the Spirit, not walk in foolishness.

Choose well.

Pro 15:5
A fool rejects his father's discipline,
But he who regards reproof is sensible.

Pro 17:7
Excellent speech is not fitting for a fool,
Much less are lying lips to a prince.

Pro 17:10
A rebuke goes deeper into one who has understanding
Than a hundred blows into a fool.

Pro 17:12
Let a man meet a bear robbed of her cubs,
Rather than a fool in his folly.

Pro 17:16
Why is there a price in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom,
When he has no sense?

Pro 17:21
He who sires a fool does so to his sorrow,
And the father of a fool has no joy.

Pro 17:24
Wisdom is in the presence of the one who has understanding,
But the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.

Pro 17:28
Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise;
When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent.

The Fool:

  • rejects his father’s discipline
  • rejects excellent speech
  • receives not rebukes
  • a life of folly
  • has no sense
  • has no wisdom
  • bring no joy to his father
  • eyes are on the end of the earth
  • does appear wise when silent…but then, opens his mouth…

The Wise/Prudent:
  • has wisdom
  • has understanding
  • receives rebuke
  • excellent speech
  • does not lie
  • regards reproof

Reject the way of the Fool.
Walk not in foolishness.

Walk in the Spirit, as Wise.
