"Fools 13"

“Fools 13”

Blessings folk!

A cacophony of sound.
A cascade of verbiage.
Word after word wearing down the listener.

Such is the speech of the fool.

Ecc 10:3
Even when the fool walks along the road, his sense is lacking and he demonstrates to everyone that he is a fool.

Ecc 10:12
Words from the mouth of a wise man are gracious, while the lips of a fool consume him;

Ecc 10:14
Yet the fool multiplies words. No man knows what will happen, and who can tell him what will come after him?

The Fool:

  • lacks sense, proves/demonstrates to everyone…even just by walking along the road
  • his folly is evident
  • his lips consume him
  • he multiplies words
  • no one know what he will say/do next

The Wise:
  • his words are gracious

Many are The Fools that think a barrage of words reflect insight, wisdom, revelation, illumination, enlightenment and truth. Sadly, many take their stand as the voice of the Lord.

Resist the temptation to pontificate and prove to be The Fool.
Rather, speak the Truth of the Most High, guided and empowered by the Spirit, thereby leading the many to righteousness.
