Proverbs 18:2 No Delight in Understanding

How long would it take to identify the fool in a room crowded with people? What criteria would you use in your selection process?

It doesn’t take long to identify him. You could even do it with your eyes closed. All you must do is listen. Listen to the one that can’t stop talking. He wants to be at the center of attention. He wants to share all the things he knows and believes. Is he interested in sharing truth or passing gossip?

A fool has no delight in understanding, but in expressing his own desire.

Proverbs 18:2

What can be learned if we choose to only listen? How much can be gained if we aren’t continually speaking?
