A Fool’s Path

foolspath-01

A wise man is cautious and turns from evil…a man’s own foolishness leads him astray.
– Proverbs 14:6a & 19:3a

When I think about Jesus’ call on our life to enter in the narrow gate and avoid the broad path that leads to destruction (Matthew 7), I congratulate myself for choosing the narrow path when I was seven. Once on the narrow path, always on the narrow path…right?

As I continue to follow Christ into adulthood, I am learning that every decision I make creates a new path in my life. But this metaphorical narrow path has exit signs every two minutes or so inviting me to inadvertently merge onto the broad path.

Proverbs instructs us that a wise man turns away from evil whereas a foolish man turns toward it and is led astray. Vague definitions and descriptions of “evil” create barriers for us to reflect on this warning personally. We tend to think, “Of course I’m not running toward EVIL!”

A Fool’s Temper

“You make me so…so…ANGRY!! *laughter* I’m angry!”My mother’s favorite quote from Enchanted comes from this video clip where Giselle experiences anger in the real world for the first time. In her animated world, anger doesn’t exist as one of her emotions.

Unfortunately, you and I don’t live in the angry-free 2-dimensional world of talking chipmunks either. We face daily situations that rattle us to the core, raising our blood pressure as well as the volume of our voices.

The book of Proverbs has a multitude of verses on anger, but we’ll focus on just two that relate anger with foolishness

A Fool’s Household

Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish one tears it down with her own hands. – Proverbs 14:1

My house came pre-built. I didn’t have to pick up a hammer or hang dry wall. In fact, we decided against purchasing a “fixer upper” because neither my husband nor I am naturally gifted with handyman skills.

So how am I supposed to obey Scripture and build my house?

Colbie Caillat, Try


The past two days, I have woken up with this song playing in my head. I am encouraged by the positive message that Colbie shares in her lyrics. Take a few minutes to watch and share it with ladies in your life who may need to be reminded that we don’t have to try to be beautiful – we’re beautiful exactly as God created us.

A Wise Person’s Words

a wisemans words-01

How did your weekend of not speaking foolish words go? My weekend, jam-packed schedule as it was, was accompanied by very few foolish temptations. Monday and Tuesday, however, were different stories.

I had two days in a row at work with nothing but horrible messes, and when insurance is involved, the messes turn disastrous quickly.

Tuesday afternoon I found myself trapped in a figurative corner, attempting to solve an insured’s dilemma with my strength and knowledge without asking God for help. I wonder how differently the situation would have turned out if I turned to Him first. I bet my panic attack and stress level would have been reduced significantly.
