Dumb and Dumber—We see the movies of that genre with the stars like Will Farrell, Owen Taylor, Steve Corrall etc. and laugh, shake our heads and wonder how that crud gets on the screen. Clearly not designed to stimulate or minds, but, just to hit the base levels of physical humor. In life, we see folks that live their lives like that genre—dumb choices, bad attitudes and coarse mouths and manners. We laugh, shake our heads and wonder how they can go through life so misdirected.
Solomon is right. Pitiful behavior taints the best of circumstances. We can spot foolish folks from a mile off. Knowing that, we need to walk in a way that honors God. Our hearts and attitudes should reflect God. Live, Laugh and love—that is great; but, know that as you respond in a way that honors God, people will be drawn to you and you will be perceived as a wise person.
Help me Lord to live wisely and behave in a way that is not Dumb and Dumber!
God Bless You
As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. 2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left. 3 Even as fools walk along the road, they lack sense and show everyone how stupid they are. 4 If a ruler’s anger rises against you, do not leave your post; calmness can lay great offenses to rest.
