Show Notes

We might think of foolishness as a relatively harmless characteristic of a person, but the Book of Proverbs thinks much differently about it. Foolishness is very harmful and destructive. We might not immediately perceive the wickedness in foolishness, but its consequences will come to bite everyone who is involved. Danger abounds when encounter a fool in their foolishness, so we must be wise and cautious to avoid it.

Illustration: Bear attack in Montana, and three friends killed on a fishing trip in Florida.

Ep 16 – It’s Good to Leave an Inheritance (Prov. 13:22)

Setting aside a portion of the wealth we earn and planning to pass it on to our children is a demonstration of godly wisdom. But an inheritance should be more than just money, it is a way that we can share our knowledge of success and discipline to help our children live with wisdom and steward well the gift we give to them.  Illustration: Scott Nash, owner of MOM’s Organic Market, and his perspective on his children’s inheritance.  If you were blessed by this episode, please consider supporting this podcast by donating at https://spiritandtruthonline.org/donate ...

Ep 19 – Listen to Counsel (Prov. 12:15)

Why should we listen to what others have to say? If we think we have all the right answers, then we shouldn’t need to. But we must never perceive ourselves as having sufficient wisdom in all circumstances. That is why the wise person will ask other (especially God) for wisdom, because part of being wise is knowing that more wisdom is always helpful to make the best decision in any circumstance.  Illustration: Jerry Wierwille and his prideful refusal to listen to his friend’s advice when windsurfing  If you were blessed by this episode, please consider supporting this podcast by donating at https://spiritandtruthonline.org/donate ...
