The Bible says that the fool puts her trust in herself and there is not much hope. There is not much hope for her success in life or her marriage or in raising her children. She may have moments of happiness from circumstances but in the end she is still a fool and she will perish.
Proverbs 28:26 He who trusts in his own heart is a fool,
But he who walks wisely will be delivered.
Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.
A fool dies because they lack understanding. The Bible says that the knowledge of God is understanding and since the fool does not seek Him, he or she lacks understanding. The fool will also despise wisdom, knowledge and understanding. If you marry a fool then you will bring sorrow on your life. Any man who does not seek Him is a fool. You can not change a man. Look at how is life was before he met you. He will revert back to who he really is.
Proverbs 10:21 The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of understanding.
Be careful who your friends are. If a fool is your friend then you will bring harm to yourself.
Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Once you recognize someone is a fool then leave their presence.
Proverbs 14:7 Leave the presence of a fool, Or you will not discern words of knowledge.
A foolish person will experience bitterness in her heart. Her heart will be broken and she will experience the pain of a lack of wisdom. A godly man will not break your heart. He will not use you. He will not lead you on or defraud you by communicating that there is more to the relationship than what there really is. A young man has no business telling a girl that he loves her unless his next words are “Will you marry me?”
Proverbs 14:33 Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding, But in the hearts of fools it is made known.
A fool does not listen to correction and reproof. In fact, a fool hates it when people correct him or her. She will not go to the wise but will go to those who will tell her what she wants to hear…which will be foolishness.
Proverbs 17:10 A rebuke goes deeper into one who has understanding Than a hundred blows into a fool.
Ecclesiastes 7:5 It is better to listen to the rebuke of a wise man Than for one to listen to the song of fools.
A fool makes promises and vows and does not keep them.
Ecclesiastes 5:4 When you make a vow to God, do not be late in paying it; for He takes no delight in fools. Pay what you vow!
Finally, seek the Lord while He is near and call upon Him while there is hope. Do not be as the foolish who live for today and do not prepare for eternity.
Matthew 25:1-13 Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them,but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
Be on the alert. Jesus is coming. Be wise and prudent and not foolish. It will be too late.
