The Science of Foolishness Part 2 

I started on this yesterday. I will complete it this morning

5. Not Seeking Help

Wise folks know it’s okay to ask for help and advice from others, but a fool thinks they’re super smart and doesn’t need anyone.

Pro 14:8 GNB
Why is a clever person wise? Because he knows what to do. Why is a stupid person foolish? Because he only thinks he knows.

6. Making Light of Serious Mistakes

Imagine someone playing a cruel joke on someone just before their wedding and then laughing it off. That’s foolishness. Mistakes should be taken seriously.

Pro 14:9 NIV
Fools mock at making amends for sin, but goodwill is found among the upright.

7. Babbling Nonsense

Fools talk a lot, but what they say doesn’t make much sense. They should listen more and talk less.

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

8. Ignoring Valuable Wisdom

You know, wisdom is like a fresh spring of water. Wise people drink from it, but fools prefer to figure things out the hard way.

Pro 16:22 MSG
True intelligence is a spring of fresh water, while fools sweat it out the hard way.

9. Not Keeping Promises

If you promise to do something and then don’t, that’s foolishness. Giving is a way to receive, so breaking a promise to give is like missing out on something good.

Ecc 5:4 MSG
When you tell God you’ll do something, do it–now. God takes no pleasure in foolish gabble. Vow it, then do it.

10. Having Anger Issues

Losing your temper and getting mad all the time can cause problems. A wise person stays calm and doesn’t let anger ruin things.

Ecc 7:9 MSG
Don’t be quick to fly off the handle. Anger boomerangs. You can spot a fool by the lumps on his head.

11. Pretending to Love When You Don’t

Fools pretend to love someone they actually hate. They also like to spread mean rumors about others.

Pro 10:18 AMP
He who hides hatred is of lying lips, and he who utters slander is a [self-confident] fool.

12. Making Parents Sad

Foolishness can hurt your parents. Instead of bringing them joy, you make them sad. That’s not good. It’s nothing but foolishness.

Pro 17:21 AMP
He who becomes the parent of a [self-confident] fool does it to his sorrow, and the father of [an empty-headed] fool has no joy [in him].

13. A fool has no secret.

A fool shares everything without thinking. They don’t keep secrets, and their lives are like an open book for everyone to see.

Pro 29:11 KJV
A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

14. Doubting God in Your Heart

Even if someone says they believe in God, their actions might show they don’t really believe. That’s foolishness.

Be wise and make good choices. Don’t let foolishness get in the way of a happy and smart life!

Psa 14:1 AMP
THE [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable deeds; there is none that does good or right. 

May God help us to be wise and to embrace wisdom in our generation and beyond!

I pray that your path will not cross with a foolish lover! You will not fall in love with foolishness!
