Grabbing a dog by the ears

You just have to love the images that flow from the chapters of Proverbs. Take this classic one as an example:

"Like one who grabs a stray dog by the ears    is someone who rushes into a quarrel not their own." - Proverbs 26:17

Everyone knows that if you grab a dog by the ears it is going to end badly. And so the wisdom from Solomon is simple. Just like a stray dog is going to turn around and bite you (if you grab her ears), so then will a quarrel end badly if you rush into it, especially if we should stay out of it.

What do you think?

Living in Grace
