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?
