Reading along with us in Proverbs? Here’s today’s reading:

Proverbs 17 (ESV)

Better is a dry morsel with quiet
    than a house full of feasting with strife.
A servant who deals wisely will rule over a son who acts shamefully
    and will share the inheritance as one of the brothers.
The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold,
    and the Lord tests hearts.
An evildoer listens to wicked lips,
    and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.
Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker;
    he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished.
Grandchildren are the crown of the aged,
    and the glory of children is their fathers.
Fine speech is not becoming to a fool;
    still less is false speech to a prince.
A bribe is like a magic stone in the eyes of the one who gives it;
    wherever he turns he prospers.
Whoever covers an offense seeks love,
    but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.
10 A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding
    than a hundred blows into a fool..

  1. 27 Whoever restrains his words has knowledge,
    and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.
    28 Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise;
    when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.

  2. “Why is there in the hand of a fool the purchase price of wisdom,
    Since he has no heart for it?”

    How do we as believers define a “fool”? and how do we deal with a fool?

    “But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, ‘Raca,’ shall be in danger of the council; but whosoever shall say, ‘Thou fool,’ shall be in danger of hell fire.” Matthew 5:22
