Yesterday we learned what the WISEST AND WEALTHIEST man EVER, KING SOLOMON, had to say about LAZY people.
Today we will learn what he says about STUPID ones!
“Stupidity is like a loud, ignorant, shameless woman.”
“Intelligent people talk sense, but STUPID (my emphasis) people need to be PUNISHED (my emphasis).” In some versions of this Proverb verse 10:13 it reads DESTROYED! I don’t think KING SOLOMON had a very high regard for STUPIDITY!
“STUPID (my emphasis) people always think they are right.”
I have seen an example of this yesteryear that my CHRISTIAN friend exhibited when she decided to further an already DANGEROUS situation that could get her hurt or KILLED! I tried to warn her but she has this tendency to think she is ALWAYS RIGHT!
“SMART (my emphasis) people keep QUIET (my emphasis) about what they know, but STUPID (my emphasis) people advertise their IGNORANCE (my emphasis).”
KING SOLOMON saw that the majority of STUPID people are also IGNORANT!
Another person I know advertises her STUPIDITY by trying to convince everybody she knows that she is coming into this BIG MONEY. The problem is she has been saying this for FIVE YEARS OR MORE! She is involved in some STUPID scam that she actually thinks is going to make her MILLIONS! So while waiting for her ship to come in she begs for money from my friend, same one mentioned in the previous example of STUPIDITY, who BELIEVES this nutcase!
“STUPID (my emphasis) people are happy with their FOOLISHNESS (my emphasis), but the WISE (my emphasis) will do what is right.”
Does this not exemplify the very STUPID scenario above? Is not this nutcase’s belief in this SCAM along with my friend a perfect example of FOOLISHNESS?
I think KING SOLOMON would agree!
