Need to Know What To Do? Remove yourself from fools. Not easy - that Satan is a clever guy! ⏤ Vol. 1 Chap 31
"Leave the presence of a fool, or you will not discern words of knowledge." Proverbs 14: 7 NASB
This proverb hit pretty hard. Repeating it here for emphasis.
Stop and think while you read it again.
"Leave the presence of a fool, or you will not discern words of knowledge." Proverbs 14:7 --------- I'm offering a challenge:
How many of us are in the presence of fools regularly? Honestly, we are surrounded by them.
We have them in our sitcoms. We friend them on Face Book. We gather with them for lunch and allow our hearts to be crushed by their mean thoughts, vulgar words, and manipulative behaviors. We are surrounded unfortunately by much foolish politics and foolish people with political ambitions. We are...
a country with a foolish publicity add on every TV channel, around every corner, on our phones, and on our billboards. We are immersed with foolish information.
And yet, here in this Proverb we read a very clear direction. Leave the presence of a fool, or you will not discern words of knowledge.
What a clever guy Satan is.
In our fast paced world of internet nanosecond communications, we have forged forward into allowing many voices to fall on our ears that years ago would have only been in places we would never enter.
Think about it. The language, the situations, the comedy, the nudity, the violence, the WORLD gets plugged into our ears and opened to our eyes regularly.
I understand that to be in business we need to be on top of things. To be privy to what is going on in the world we need to listen to the news. To keep in touch with family and friends and business co-workers we have social media. However, I would like to offer not only you, but me a challenge.
What would it be like to be unencumbered by foolish people and information one day a week?
Would it be enough to silence the world in our minds?
I have unplugged before. I have heard of very successful people unplugging for weeks, months even years. They call it a digital detox.
But, my challenge is not for months or even years. My challenge is to unplug from all media for one day a week. Just one.
One day a week for three months.
And then, if finding it helpful move to four, five, six months. Possibly making it a life-long choice.
Unplugging, just like Sabbath rest, could bring us back to being able to discern the fools who speak foolishness all around us and allow us to come up for air.
Perhaps then we will be better able to discern the words of knowledge.
I will begin one day this week.
I'll let you know next week here on our blog how it goes.
Because HE IS the I AM, i am,
