We are still talking and learning wisdom from the life and times of King Solomon. The truth of the matter is that we can never know it all.
Why do we keep on talking about wisdom? We do this because we learn everyday.
See another thing Solomon has to say about wisdom
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.” –Proverbs 9:10-12 (NIV)
Children, I want you to know that God abhors mockers. Mocking is a serious sin before God. Do you know that God destroyed some Israelites because of mockery?
Furthermore, Solomon’s father, King David, warned us about mockery. He told us no mocker will be blessed.
a BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. – Ps 1:1[AMP]
This tells us there are places you should not find yourself as a believer. There are gathering of mockers you are not meant to be found in. There are certain locations that should not be traceable to you.
I believe you want to be blessed even as you advance in age, then never give room to mockery. The resultant effect is that you will suffer alone.
May that no be your portion in Jesus name, amen.
Lord, help me not to be a mocker in Jesus name.
List out associations you should do without.
I am not a mocker.
