Insights from Proverbs 26


Insights from Proverbs 26 for the 26th:

There are lots of verses here that deal with the fool (4-12).

For instance: “do not answer a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him.” Sounds like an internet argument, doesn’t it? Who hasn’t gotten into one and how did it work out?

11 has a vivid (and let’s just say disgusting) image of what it’s like to keep on repeating folly.

16 reminds me of the armchair quarterback who thinks they can do better than the actual athletes in the game.

17: don’t meddle; it’s like yanking a dog’s ears… which will result in being bit!

Lots of good stuff here, but my favorite (and the one I have highlighted, underlined, and starred in my Bible – is 20: “Where there is no wood, the fire goes out.”

Man, this proverb could have saved me plenty of unnecessary strife.
