Doing wrong is fun for a fool. 9.9.11

Doing wrong is fun for a fool, but living wisely brings pleasure to the sensible. (Proverbs 10:23 NLT)

An empty-head thinks mischief is fun, but a mindful person relishes wisdom. (Proverbs 10:23 MSG)

Sin is fun for the fool, wisdom brings joy for the godly. Both are driven by the desire for joy and satisfaction, yet only one has had that desire renewed and redeemed to function as God intended. God designed mankind to find their joy in relationship and knowledge of their Creator, yet sin has lured us away and decieved us into thinking that is where happiness is found. Action. My sons, especially when you are in high school and college, look around you, you can spot the fool quickly for they laugh, joke and rejoice in sin, wisdom to them is a waste of time. Remember, they are the majority, you are special…set apart by God to do great things for Him, so pursue and find your joy in growing in wisdom and knowledge of Him.
