UNWISE PEOPLE

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Proverbs 1:20-33

…fools despise wisdom and instruction

Proverbs 1:7

 

The spirit of foolishness operates in those who leave in rebellion.

Some people leave their positions because they are afflicted with the spirit of foolishness. Foolishness is the opposite of wisdom. Taking unwise decisions that lead to desolation and poverty are the hallmarks of a fool. Why should you take a decision that destroys your life?

It is difficult to fathom why people do certain things. But in life, many people take foolish decisions which destroy them. Foolishness and stubbornness are sisters. A foolish person is usually stubborn and unyielding. A fool’s reaction to advice will often give him away . In fact, a fool will hate you for giving him sound advice. This is a cardinal feature of the spirit of foolishness.

I am sure that many people spoke to the prodigal son about his decision to leave. Perhaps his father, mother, uncles and aunties tried to advice him. The spirit of foolishness makes you deaf to advice and counsel.

The spirit of foolishness makes you hate advice. It makes you hate your counsellor. When you shut out godly advice and counsel from your life, you shut the door to great opportunities and blessings! Do you have feelings of resentment towards your pastors?

Do you get angry with the people who advice you? Then perhaps you have the spirit of foolishness!
