Proverbs 26:4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
Friends, as Christians, the bible is our constitution and/or instruction manual and it has LOTS to say about foolishness. Let us endeavor to check ourselves against what the bible says concerning this subject.
The bible tells us anger lies in the bosom of fools (Eccl. 7:9) and that a fool says in his heart there is no God (Psalm 14:1). A fool is full of words (Eccl. 10:14) but when he shuts his lips, is esteemed a man of understanding (Pro. 17:28). The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkens unto counsel is wise (Prov. 12:15). A fool despises correction:
A fool despiseth his father’s instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent (Proverbs 15:5).
A fool hath no delight in understanding (Prov. 18:2). As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly (Prov. 26:11). A fool utters all his mind: but a wise man keeps it in till afterwards (Prov. 29:11). The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow him up (Eccl. 10:12).
Friends, wisdom is the principal thing. Get wisdom, and in all your getting, get understanding!!!
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh (Proverbs 4:20 – 22).
The bible says he that winneth soul is wise. It doesn’t take rocket science to conclude that he that does not win souls is foolish. Therefore friends, on this glorious Friday that the Lord has made, witness Christ to somebody TODAY and REFUSE to be numbered among the fools!
I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that God who is The Only Wise God will open the door of utterance unto you that you may BOLDLY declare the counsels of God!

O Lord, I do not want to be a fool! If I have been a fool, have mercy on me! I reject foolishness in the mighty name of Jesus! I put away foolishness far from me in the mighty name of Jesus! Foolishness is not my portion in the mighty name of Jesus! God is my portion in the land of the living!
Father, you are The Only Wise God, I receive wisdom from you in Jesus’ mighty name! Mighty God, I receive the spirit of wisdom, counsel, knowledge, understanding! Make me of quick understanding the in the fear of the Lord! From today, Lord, I will attend to thy words in the mighty name of Jesus!
Father, you are the door. I enter into the month of June by you! You are the way and the truth – Guide me in the mighty name of Jesus! You are the potter, I am the clay – in ANY way that I may have been marred (through sin or foolishness), remold me into a vessel of honor SANCTIFIED and meet for your use!
