The lesson on May 5, 2024 was part 27 of the “Wisdom” study which covered Proverbs 26. Wayne took time to review what we learned in the previous lesson by reviewing the reverential fear that we should have for God.  We can fear God because He is all powerful but the proper fear is one of piety and respecting how God can love and forgive you. This was expressed in Psalms 130:1-8 KJV.  We then got into Proverbs 26:1, 4-6, 8, 10-12 KJV.  Wayne took time to explain the interpretation of Proverbs 26:2 KJV. Much of this chapter is addressing the fool.  In today’s society, we seem to be praising fools.  Well, we learned that if a man thinks he is all that (loves his own wise conceit), there is more hope of a fool than for him.

The scripture reading was from Proverbs 26:1-12 (KJV) “26 As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool. 2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. 3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool’s back. 4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. 5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit. 6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage. 7 The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools. 8 As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honour to a fool. 9 As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools. 10 The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors. 11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. 12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.”
