Foolishness (poor judgment)
Yesterday’s installment we ended with Proverbs 22:15. Lets open with it today.
Proverbs 22:15 (AMP)15 Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of discipline [correction administered with godly wisdom and lovingkindness] will remove it far from him. source
I started with Studylight.org again with our word and found: without reason.
Immediately, Isaiah 1:18 came to mind.
Isaiah 1:18 (KJV) 18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. source
Foolishness can be driven from the heart of a child or an adult as we come together with the LORD. And when we come He administers His Wisdom and His Lovingkindness to us, and upon our repentance He removes the penalty of our sins, washing us clean and enabling us to live free and holy in this unholy world.
To refuse Him, to refuse to come and reason with the LORD of Glory is ultimate foolishness; indeed making us full of foolishness with the poorest of all judgments.
Without Christ, we are indeed fools.
In covenant with Him, for us to neglect His wisdom, His counsel on any given matter, is utter foolishness.
I am trusting this labor of love will make a holy difference somewhere, at a time certain, for someone, including me. 🙂
