Dangerous Fool

Proverbs 17:12

Let a man meet a she-bear robbed of her cubs
rather than a fool in his folly.

We laugh at the fool and dismiss him for his nonsensical behavior. But just as we would run for cover when a gun is placed in the hands of a child who thinks he has a toy, so we need all the more to be careful around the fool.

Scott Kelly Obituary

This link will take you to an obituary for Scott Kelly, former Tenth member.


Proverbs 17:11

An evil man seeks only rebellion,
and a cruel messenger will be sent against him.

Such a person looks at life from the perspective of “me versus everyone else.” He is in rebellion against everyone because he sees everyone as competitor. The competitor may be someone over him; thus he looks at the competitor as an oppressor, someone whose chains must be thrown off. The competitor may be an equal, whom he sees as a combatant fighting to get ahead of him. The competitor may be under him, whom he regards as someone trying to undermine him. That is the way life is to him – each person seeking power for himself. Rules are created by those in power to restrain those below them from rebelling. And so he rebels. He does not merely question authority; he seeks to undermine it.

Of Rebuke and Blows

Proverbs 17:10

A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding
than a hundred blows into a fool.

The ultimate distinction between a man of understanding and a fool is not how well they do on an aptitude test but in how well they receive correction. Everyone will make mistakes; everyone sins. What then do they do when their mistake or sin is pointed out?

"He didn't want me to tell anyone, but..."
"Did you know..."
"We should be praying for..."

The Good Bribe

Proverbs 17:8

A bribe is like a magic stone in the eyes of the one who gives it;
wherever he turns he prospers.

This proverb is translated in different ways, and this particular translation can be given two different interpretations: it is observing the way and perspective of the wicked briber but does not agree with him, or it is commenting on the effective use of gifts, another translation of the word.
