Daily Bible Reading for Sunday, February 18th:

Proverbs 26 – Foolish Response

4 Don’t answer fools when they speak foolishly, or you will be just like them.
5 Answer fools when they speak foolishly, or they will think they are really wise.
Proverbs 26:4-5

This seemingly contradictory couplet reminds us to look at every situation by its own merit before applying our wisdom to it. Sometimes a situation can be dangerous if left unaddressed. Sometimes a situation is nothing but a waste of time if you engage in it.
