SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/02/15- “Even Fools Are Thought To Be Wise!” (Proverbs 17:28)

Premise Question: On what exact occasion is it, that there’s a presumption of intelligence assumed even for fool; a time when they are perceived, viewed and regarded, as someone who is thought to have good sense, a modicum of smarts and at least some degree of wisdom?

Even fools are thought wise when they keep silent; with their mouths shut, they seem intelligent. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭17‬:‭28‬ NLT)

So, even those who lack good judgement and common sense will have a presumption of having a modicum of smarts if they stay mute, but that’s not all, if they choose to keep their mouths shut and not speak, they’ll be viewed as having great insight and understanding! (Proverbs 17:28 PDCP)

Bottom Line: There are those times and occasions, where one may be subject to, and under a presumption of, thinking that someone is really smart, filled with supreme intelligence, being full of useful and great wisdom, but alas, the someone then proceeds to open their mouth and the truth is exposed, as the words begin to flow out. That’s when it quickly becomes crystal clear and quite apparent, that the someone has a dearth of intellectual prowess, as they begin to exhibit a lack of brilliance or of having any smarts, without even a modicum of wisdom. Perhaps, maybe there have been times or occasions where we’ve found ourselves to be the one who refused to hold or restrain our tongue and the flow of inappropriate and not very helpful words that flowed out! There are times and occasions, though, where it would not only be appropriately prudent, but extremely wise, for us to shut the trap door, lock it up and throw away the key, to zip it, close it, button it up, confine the remarks or even hit the mute and stay completely silent! Propriety and aptness should always rule the day, otherwise, we will wreck and rue the day, the occasion and times, where we were not using wisdom or discernment, and everyone became well aware and knew it! A friend recently told me something their mother use to tell them all the time. “Son, you can’t argue with silence!” It’s said that silence is golden! I say, only, in some cases, if it stays hidden, otherwise it’s exposed as fools gold! For even fools are thought to be wise when they keep quiet, by staying silent! Let’s choose to be wise!

Posted on Updated on

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. (Colossians 4:5, 6 NIV)

Be prudent, with proper discernment, in regards to the manner of your deportment towards those who presently are not yet a part of the redeemed, the family of God; be compelled, with great temerity, taking full advantage on every occasion of each favorable condition presented to you. Let your interactions with others, through the words that are spoken and exchanged, without exception, be abundantly flavored with expressions that preserve and are filled with favor, goodwill and kindness; this, so you will properly perceive, with complete comprehension and understanding, coming into the full realization of how to respond correctly, with an appropriate reply, to every person you may engage. (Colossians 4:5,6 PDCP)
