Identifying and Avoiding Becoming the Fool

June 26, 2022 Speaker: Gibson Largent Series: Proverbs

Passage: Proverbs 18:1–3

What is a fool?

A good definition is found in Isaiah 32:6-8

Isaiah 32:6–8 - “[6] For the fool speaks folly, and his heart is busy with iniquity, to practice ungodliness, to utter error concerning the LORD, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink. [7] As for the scoundrel—his devices are evil; he plans wicked schemes to ruin the poor with lying words, even when the plea of the needy is right. [8] But he who is noble plans noble things, and on noble things he stands. (ESV)

Proverbs 18:1–3

[1] Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire;
he breaks out against all sound judgment.
[2] A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
but only in expressing his opinion.
[3] When wickedness comes, contempt comes also,
and with dishonor comes disgrace. (ESV)
