July 18, 2021 – The Silly Fool

Proverbs 12:15-22

You can tell a lot about a person from their communication and words.  Unfortunately, this is also where many are silly fools, ignoring advice, distorting the truth, speaking without thinking.  Words are a powerful tool that can be used for healing, but the silly fool is reckless and uses words to wound.  However, the healing words and life of Christ bring restoration to the silly fool and make communication a blessing.

Proverbs 12:15-22  15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice. 16 The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult. 17 Whoever speaks[b] the truth gives honest evidence, but a false witness utters deceit. 18 There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. 19 Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment. 20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but those who plan peace have joy. 21 No ill befalls the righteous, but the wicked are filled with trouble. 22 Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.

Proverbs 10:14 The wise lay up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool brings ruin near.

Proverbs 20:3  It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife, but every fool will be quarreling.

Proverbs 27:3  It is an honor for a man to keep 

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 10:21 The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of sense.

Proverbs 29:9 f a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet.

Proverbs 7:22 [Of the forbidden “woman”, prostitute] All at once he follows her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a stag is caught fast

About the speaker

David Langewisch

First and foremost you need to know I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus. I believe my life is fully in him. I feel good about my training to be a pastor. However, my heart's desire is to simply be a servant of Christ, used by him to help people experience fullness of life in him. Sometimes I think I’m smart. Sometimes I think I’m funny. But I count all of this as a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ and being found in him. My favorite book of the Bible is Romans, and if you have to pin me down, my favorite chapter is Romans 8. Personally, I think this matters more than knowing I’m from Minnesota, or that I was graduated from Lutheran schools starting with elementary school. Curiosity might lead you to ask about my wonderful wife, Lynn, and four children, but I would probably exaggerate about their greatness and how helpful would that be? If you really want to know other positions I’ve held, honors I’ve received, etc., you can ask and I will try to remember. But when you walk away from our conversation, this is what I want you to remember about me – I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus and I believe my life is fully in him. And if, in my contact with you, some of this rubs off on you, and you share the same perspective with greater conviction, I will count it a blessing.
