The Way of the Fool
- 2013 2 Oct
Scripture tells us “The fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion” (Proverbs 18:2). In relationships we can be “right” or we can “be in relationship,” but rarely both. Relationships require a certain gentleness; an ability to hold our tongue and be sensitive. Certainly we know that “expressing an opinion” can be foolhardy, and often sets us against others. Are you argumentative? Do you pride yourself in stating your opinion?
