As we have seen, the Lord has given extensive…and often uncomfortable…detail related to the fool.
Today we learn what happens to those who trust The Fool…
He cuts off his own feet and drinks violence
Who sends a message by the hand of a fool.
Like one who binds a stone in a sling,
So is he who gives honor to a fool.
Like an archer who wounds everyone,
So is he who hires a fool or who hires those who pass by.
Like a dog that returns to its vomit
Is a fool who repeats his folly.
Send a message by the hand of a fool?
…like cutting off your own feet
…like drinking violence
Give honor to a fool?
…like binding a stone in a sling
…like given a loaded firearm to an incompetent
Hire a fool?
…like an archer who wounds everyone…no control, haphazard
A fool repeats folly.
He is like a dog that returns to its vomit.
Be not a fool.
Reach and rescue The Fool from his folly…speak Truth.
