May 4 – Proverbs 18
LOOK: “An unfriendly person pursues selfish ends
and against all sound judgment starts quarrels.
Fools find no pleasure in understanding
but delight in airing their own opinions…
The lips of fools bring them strife,
and their mouths invite a beating.
The mouths of fools are their undoing,
and their lips are a snare to their very lives.”
LISTEN: I’m reminded when reading these verses about the “fools” that I have ministered to over the years. I’m not trying to be nasty but I’ve counseled my fair share of people who were living arrogant, disobedient lives and they constantly refused to listen to Godly advice. Typically, those who are living willful, sinful lives become angry and are their own worst enemies.
LEARN: Beware of the fool…they will cause damage!!
