Seeing John Wesley coming along the street one day, a man straddled the pavement and said to him: “I never get out of my way for a fool.”
“But I always do,” replied Wesley, as he stepped aside.
A fine illustration of fulfilling the command: “Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own estimation.” (Pro 26: 5 NET).
“Wisdom prepares for the worst, but folly leaves the worst for the day when it comes.” - Richard Cecil.
Pro 1:7 (ISV): “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.”
