Everyday Wisdom | Proverbs 10:13

by Isaac Guess

“In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.” Proverbs 10:13

Again, Solomon presents a compare and contrast between the wise individual and the fool. The comparison should be embarrassing and humiliating to the fool. As people grow older, change is inevitable. I no longer play with GI Joes. I don’t look forward to Saturday morning cartoons. (I do still enjoy ice cream cones at my grandmothers, though). These changes occur naturally with physical, intellectual, and emotional development. These changes are also expected by society. If I walked around with a pacifier in my mouth murmuring nursery rhymes, the common conclusion would be that something was abnormal with me, that somehow my development was stunted.

In the same way, with spiritual maturity, progress is expected. As one matures spiritually, their words begin to carry more weight and possess greater authority. This is commonly seen. We all know people of whom we ask advice, seek counsel, and listen carefully to their opinion on issues of the day. We do not listen because they demand attention, but we listen because we know that they speak with wisdom as a rule. This is the way it is supposed to be. As we mature, we should become wiser. On the other hand, my parents are not expected to give me spankings anymore. This is not necessarily because I have grown too physically big for a spanking. Instead, it is because I am expected to have put away the childish transgressions that sparked the discipline. A grown up person who is continually finding trouble is not just unlucky. They are fools. They lack understanding. They should be considered abnormal. Sadly, in our day, the abnormal has become the norm. Transgressions by those who should know better are excused, explained away, or simply accepted. God has a different way of looking at things. He says that these people are void of understanding, which is just another way of saying that they are fools. Where do you find yourself? Do people listen to you because they know wisdom will proceed from your mouth, or are you constantly finding trouble?
