Episode 10: The Simple, the Fool, the Scoffer

Reading: Proverbs 7:10-8:3

Watch on YouTube

In this episode, we explore the characters who resist the way of wisdom introduced in the book of Proverbs. We discuss the "simple minded," the fool, and the scoffer, and how their behaviors can affect the workplace. We also examine how Lady Folly can seductively persuade them down her path, leading them away from wisdom. Upon closer examination we want to challenge you to consider which of these characters have played a part in your life and work experience and what you learned from the consequences. Reflect on your past, examine your present, and consider the future. What can you do today to lead you to a deeper relationship with Lady wisdom?
