Proverbs 29:9 Devotional_PT1 Proverbs 29:9 (KJV) If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.It is often a great perplexity about how to deal with some people who belong in the category of fool.Fools, scoffers, and the simple like to have their own way and be told they're doing fine, but wise men and women Sometimes, no matter what you do, there is no success in dealing with them. They still make a lot of noise and cannot be corrected.Anyone who has interacted with a fool understands this truth. No matter what you do-how carefully you plan your words, or how logically you craft your arguments, or how rightly you position yourself---the fool simply will not listen. You cannot reason with such a person because they are not willing to listen to wisdom and truth. No communication strategy is effective. As Proverbs 29:9 points out, neither humor nor anger will make your point."He that is not with Me is against Me," said Jesus (Matt. 12:30).What will it be in your life, the feast or the funeral?The same is true when we find ourselves forced to deal with fools.None of us has complete control of our lives. We cannot completely avoid having to deal with foolish people. However, when you recognize that you are dealing with a fool remember that you are facing a no win situation. The best course of action is to end the conversation as quickly as possible and spend your time with those who are willing to heed wisdom."When it comes to possessing eternal life and living so as to please God, it's an either/or situation. Either we accept the invitation or we reject it; either we obey His wisdom or we reject it.
