Quiet Truth

 

“The fool must think I have no sharp claws only because he hasn’t felt them.”

|“7 He who corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself, And he who reproves a wicked man gets insults for himself. 8 Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you, Reprove a wise man and he will love you. 9 Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning.…”(PROVERBS 9:7-9)|

|“Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. (Proverbs 26:4)

|”Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes.” (26:5)

The beauty of the PROVERBS is they need but little explanation, if any. And I rarely hear folks disagree over the truth of their profound simplicity. Do you discern how 26:4 and verse :5 Do Not contradict each other but rather support one another? Solomon was a master of the abbreviated statement of truth even when they seemed to contradict. Which made him a master teacher in the way his statements say, “Think!”(a teacher’s primary goal). And in that one word is his message throughout. Sometimes the most profound truth can be expressed with few words.

Retired and On sabbatical (again, but not quite). More info available in 'About Me' on my site page.(There is a small square box with three little dots inside, on the upper right hand side of every blog page,at the right side of title banner. Click on those dots to take you to a "hidden" site page with more info provided by me, including "follow" button and "About me." I didn't design this thing.It came as-is.)Also WP has a mandatory banner at the bottom of the screen about privacy and cookies policy that blocks the visibility of a "follow" button that pops up under a "close and accept' of the privacy agreement. You have to click the 'close and accept to see the follow button. Things are becoming more complicated to navigation with hidden activations and complex instructions. Life and technology is like that. If something seems simple you're probably doing it wrong. But I'm left-handed so maybe it's just me.
