Are we more foolish than birds and rats? It seems that at least some of us are. Today’s devotional will explain. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Proverbs 15:21 English Standard Version (ESV)
21 Folly is a joy to him who lacks sense,
but a man of understanding walks straight ahead.
“It is astonishing what unteachable, untamable creatures men are. They learn wisdom about all the little matters of daily life by experience, but they do not seem to do so about the higher. Even a sparrow comes to understand a scarecrow after a time or two, and any rat in a hole will learn the trick of a trap. But you can trick men over and over again with the same inducement, and, even whilst the hook is sticking in their jaws, the same bait will tempt them once more.”
