Daily Verse: “On the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found, but a rod is for the back of him who lacks sense.” Prov. 10:13

Fools don’t learn.

Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different outcome defines insanity. Eating chocolate every night before bed won’t cause me to lose weight. Nor will snacking all evening. However, maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly will.

People who lack sense don’t learn from their mistakes, instead repeating them. To learn, we must take responsibility for our actions, adjust and change what we do. We can’t grow any other way.

“Sometimes you need a pat on the back; sometimes you need a kick in the rear. You need the latter.”  My professor’s words to me over 30 years ago still ring true. Foolish in my ways, not studying, skipping class, he gave me wise words I’ve not forgotten.

For fools to learn, they need a nudge in the right direction. And even then, they may not change their ways. Thank God I did.

Lord, thank You for nudging us in the right direction. Forgive us when we get stuck in a rut, refusing to learn the lesson. Help us grow as we live life pursuing You, becoming wiser as we do. IJNIP. Amen
