Tag Archive | a fool exposes his folly

Ecclesiastes 10:1 ” As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.”

You don’t hear the word  “folly”  used much now a days…to the point I had to look it up for the correct definition.  According to Webster, folly means a lack of good sense, a foolish act or a stupid idea.  So we may not call it folly today, but yet we can see a lot of it across social media!   People taking chances and performing dangerous acts on a dare,  or acting the fool in front of a camera without thinking first how it might impact their life tomorrow.  Proverbs 13:16 tells us that,  “a fool exposes his folly.”  So think about it – anytime you act on a foolish idea before you first think about the consequences…you risk revealing just how stupid you look to others.
