Wisdom From Dad Continued…


Wisdom From Dad Continued…

By Joe Palmer

The Bible says a lot about the tongue and so did Dad.    He always said,

Never argue with a fool, someone listening might not be able to tell the difference.

We do look pretty foolish when we get involved in foolish arguments.   The Bible warns us about such. Paul told Timothy, “Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.”  2 Tim 2:23 (ESV) He warned Titus,  “But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless”  Titus 3:9 (ESV)

I guess Dad was right. He just said it a little differently.
