7 Stay away from a fool,
for you will not find knowledge on their lips.
8 The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways,
but the folly of fools is deception
The wise man progresses through life in a thoughtful and intentional manner. Fools speak before they think and say whatever comes to their minds. Fools are not deliberately deceptive. Rather, the un-intentional words and actions of a fool are impetuous and haphazard. Unfortunately, fools frequently have an audience. Social Media serves as an amplification device for the foolish.
As wise men, we are saddled with the responsibility to deliberate on what we read and on what we are told. It is not our roles to correct or argue with the Fools...Rather, we need to spread the light and the truth. A friend of mine calls us to "spread the good news of our organizations in our communities." Wise men will construct a message that will enlighten and inspire others.
