>Proverbs 9:13-18, the way of the fool

In Bible, Mornings, Proverbs on June 30, 2010 by mstevensrev

>13 The woman Folly is loud; she is seductive and knows nothing.
14 She sits at the door of her house; she takes a seat on the highest places of the town,
15 calling to those who pass by, who are going straight on their way,
16 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!” And to him who lacks sense she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
18 But he does not know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.

Folly is also calling, just like wisdom. That makes following her understandable. On top of that we are told that the immediate result we get with her feels good, sweet, and pleasant. When I start acting that way it becomes intoxicating. So if you are there or have been there it’s okay and understandable, forgive yourself and God will forgive you as well. Also pay attention because her end, Lady Folly, is death. Not just death like end, but death like very bad place. You will end up in a mess that you do not want to be in.
