DEALING WITH ANNOYING PEOPLE

October 25, 2016

Proverbs 12:16 

The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult.

 

 

LESSON

 

A “prudent” person “ignores an insult”. The insult is dishonor to himself or herself. A fool’s reaction is “like an injured animal and so his opponent knows that he has been wounded.” A fool brings dishonor on himself and becomes vulnerable by making a big deal out of some insult

that he received.

 

He is a fool who, if some injury is done to him, immediately shows his vexation in a passionate manner; while, on the contrary, the prudent man maintains silence as to the dishonor that is done to him, and represses his displeasure, so as not to increase his vexation to his own injury.

 

Memory Verse: Proverbs 16:20
