A Proverb for Today — Proverbs 26:9

Proverbs 26:9

As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

A quick thought today.

A drunkard is heedless of the danger, and may be so drunk that he doesn’t even realise he is stabbing himself in the hand when he puts it down on a thorn.

A fool is heedless of his folly, and may be so foolish that he doesn’t even realise how badly he is skewering himself with the wise saying he repeats, how badly it reveals and rebukes his own folly.

May the Lord give us grace to see our own folly in the light of His Word, and may He teach us wisdom.
