Reflections on Proverbs 25-27

Which proverb especially speaks to your life situation today?  How should you respond?

  • The Fool – Proverbs 26:3-12 paints the picture of a fool. A fool cannot be trusted with tasks.  He continues in his folly.  His attempts to speak wisdom dismally fail.  Yet there is more hope for a fool than one who is wise in his own eyes.  When are you tempted to be wise in your eyes?
  • The Sluggard – Proverbs 26:13-16 paints the picture of a sluggard. He makes up excuses not to work.  He sleeps and lounges around when he should be up.  He starts a task, but never finishes.  What work does God have for you to do?  Think beyond just jobs.  What excuses have you been making?  What tasks do you need to finish?
