A fool and his proverbs

May 8, 2015

A proverb in the mouth of a fool is pointless. Not because the proverb is bad, but because it lacks its proper context. It’s the context that gives value to any text, any message. A limb is critical, its value and usefulness lies only when it remains attached to the body and not when it has been severed. That’s why the Bible notes, “Like a lame man’s legs that hang limp is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.” Likewise is misquoting scripture. When men who have no regard for God’s laws or His truth quote Scripture like dirt, that’s what it becomes, dirt! So beware a proverb quoted by the wrong source. Coz it misleads, it leads you away from its true context. It is critical to be soundly anchored.
