Portrait of a Fool
January 22, 2012 Series: The Way of the Wise
Topic: Biblical Passage: Proverbs 17:28
King Solomon painted a picture with words in the book of Proverbs. He painted two portraits, one showing what a person looks like who walks in the "Way of the Wise." The second is the Portrait of a Fool. Proverbs 1:7 says that a fool despises wisdom and discipline. Sadly, we see this portrait often in everyday life. When we recognize what a fool looks like we need to walk in the opposite direction. The mouth, the ears and the eyes of a fool reveal who they are. May we reject the way of the fool and embrace the "Way of the Wise!"
