Daily Nugget:
Proverbs 18 brings to light behavior tolerated by most but not accepted by God.  His Word shows that those types of conduct are foolish.

We see here that foolishness:


After reading the wisdom of these four types of foolishness, it should bring to mind the actions and words heard today from prominent speakers, politicians, and others.  Their statements may be eloquent and contain official-sounding, ten-dollar catchy phrases, but much of what we hear is not wisdom. In God’s eyes, much of what is said and accepted is still foolish.

Today’s Thought: 
“It is relational suicide to assume you can ever win over a fool by argument, sweet reasonableness, or any other common wisdom.”  — Jan Silvious, Foolproofing Your Life

Folly: foolish actions
Haughty: prideful; arrogant

Prudent: careful; wisely deciding
Slothful: lazy

18 ¶ The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.
19 ¶ A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
20 ¶ A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
