Wisdom From Heaven For Life On Earth

#15 - AVOIDING THE PATH OF THE SCOFFER

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Various Passages in Proverbs
#15 in the series "WISDOM FROM HEAVEN FOR LIFE ON EARTH SERIES"


Scoffing is different from criticism. Criticism can sometimes be constructive and helpful. Criticism frequently has good reason behind it. Some things deserve criticism. Scoffing involves, not only the thoughts expressed, but the attitude behind the thoughts. The scoffer usually considers himself not only clever, but funny. There is a proud resistance in the heart of the scoffer to the truth he mocks. Scoffing, unlike criticism, is rarely, if ever, given to help the situation. Perhaps the closest cousin to scoffing would be the habit of ridicule. But while the dictionary can give you the meaning of the term, only the Bible can give you God's attitude toward it. And nowhere is that more clearly done in the Scriptures than in the book of Proverbs.
