The way of fools

Today's Bible Verse: Proverbs 12:15 - Accept the Truth
It amazes me that nothing seems to have changed in the hearts of people for thousands of years. With all our inventions, technology, skills, access to knowledge and ability to master our environment, we are still yet to gain control of the 'person within.' The heart of a person is still swayed by sin and we need the grace of our Saviour to break the chains that bind us. Read these words to see where I am coming from.

"The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.
Fools show their annoyance at once, but the prudent overlook an insult.
An honest witness tells the truth, but a false witness tells lies.
The words of the reckless pierce like swords,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment." - Proverbs 12:15-19

We still live in a world where the 'way of fools' seems to be lauded as the best way and how reckless words pierce the hearts of innocent people. The only thing that may have changed is that now the 'way of fools' is also posted all over the internet and not just spoken in public.

Let us commit to becoming people of wisdom and Christians who follow the directives of Jesus.

Living in Grace
