The Foolish Lover 

Foolishness is not something you want to court in any way. 

Being married to a foolish person is a decision to afflict oneself for a long time. 

It is therefore in order to prayerfully approach marriage. How do you even know a person is foolish? 

We have all made some foolish decisions in the past, or some foolish mistakes, but to habitually live foolishly is no virtue at all.

The Foolish Lover 

Let’s look at a few ways you can know a foolish lover

 Resistance to wisdom and discipline 

Pro 1:7 (AMPC) The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning and the principal and choice part of knowledge [its starting point and its essence]; but fools despise skillful and godly Wisdom, instruction, and discipline. [Psa 111:10]

A foolish lover will have no regard for the pursuit of wisdom. 

A foolish lover takes no instruction from anyone. 

A foolish lover thinks they know it all.

A foolish lover feels insulted when their spouse in advising or correcting them 

A foolish lover has nobody correcting them. Not even their parents.

A foolish lover hates discipline with a passion. They are submitted to know one, and they take instructions from know one. 

Marrying a fool is like entering one chance!

Your only resort would be to continue to pray!

The Foolish Lover 

How do you recognize a fool?

Pro 15:2 KJV The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

A fool has mouth diarrhea. When they open their mouth, foolishness will emerge.

Take a look at The Message Translation:

Pro 15:2 (MSG) Knowledge flows like spring water from the wise; fools are leaky faucets, dripping nonsense.


Fools are leaky faucets, annoyingly dripping nonsense. 

Imagine living, surrounded by nonsense?

It is the reason you want to “shine” your eyes before making a marital decision, and not just because of some hot legs or some bum!

What if you are already married and you feel…

Rule No 1; Never call your spouse foolish!

Rather prayerfully approach how you can turn things around. Read a book together, discuss sermons after church, lovingly bring up the issue of mentorship…and so on.

Good morning!
