Proverbs 23:9 (KJV) “Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words”.
Many of you with kids will understand the advice given to us by the writer of this word; there are times when you can see something in the behavior they are engaging in that would cause harm further down the road, but by reason of resistance or for whatever blockage there might be within the person, it goes down the road.
It can be perturbing and quite disturbing to know that as a result of the lack of foresight, many folks will get hurt because of pride or foolishness. The only cure for this is to cease from speaking in the ears of a fool because as the word says, continuance in doing so is that person despising the words of wisdom you offer.
