So, we’re going to be working our way through Solomon’s writings. In general, I prefer them to Psalms. This passage closes with the Wise inherit honor, but the fools only shame. Also within these verses the praise for wisdom and knowledge cautions to seek God’s wisdom not your own.
So, we live in a world of ignorance and misinformation. Reading a celebration of wisdom feels like something of a balm. But, those who suckle at the teat of Right Wing Propaganda believe they have wisdom. I suppose we are left with what bears fruit and what brings peace. The problem is that the anti-intellectuals and the white supremacists feeling free to spew hate now, will not bear the brunt of the destruction they are causing.
Perhaps I’ll read Revelation more sympathetically this year.
