A Fool’s Portrait - CD

Ecclesiastes 10:12–20

When Scripture paints a life, the Spirit of God never overlooks the blemishes, the scars, or any other imperfection. The Divine Artist does not flatter His subjects. Ecclesiastes 10 is a case in point. Having established indisputable evidence that wisdom is the only way to fly, Solomon placed folly and foolishness alongside wisdom to highlight the contrast. Fools do not listen or learn, and they cannot hide the truth from anyone. Fools are known as such by the public. While on the subject, Solomon went further into detail, supplying additional information about the characteristics of a fool. The painting is anything but enjoyable; nevertheless, it drips with realism. If we laughed at fools before, we see the tragic and dangerous side of them now.
