More Hope for a Fool

More Hope for a Fool

Proverbs 26:1-11 recounts the foolishness of fools and warns of the folly of trusting those who reject the Lord’s wisdom and direction. Each proverb strengthens the case against those who trust in their own wisdom rather than God’s. The last two verses, however, call us up short. As hopeless as fools are, the proud and self-confident person has even less hope. Do you humbly seek God’s wisdom and ways, or do you consider yourself wise in your own eyes?

            As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly. Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them. —Proverbs 26:11-12

Prayer: Lord, I don’t want to be a fool or live like a fool. My hope is in You. You have trusted me to represent You in the world. I can only do this by humbly looking to You and allowing You to transform me. Let me live and lead like Jesus today, I pray in His name, amen.
