Smartening Up A Chump 26:5

Smartening Up A Chump
Proverbs 26:5

Answer a fool according to his folly,
or he will be wise in his own eyes.

PCdc Commentary

You can’t cheat an honest man;
never give a sucker an even break, or smarten up a chump.
W.C. Fields, 1939, You Can’t Cheat an Honest Man

The scriptural thing to do, however, IS to smarten up that chump.
Otherwise, in his ignorance, he will continue believing that he is wise.

Put To Shame By Your Neighbor 25:8

Put To Shame By Your Neighbor
Proverbs 25:8

What you have seen with your eyes
do not bring hastily to court,
for what will you do in the end
if your neighbor puts you to shame?

PCdc Commentary

I taught my progeny from the crib:
You cannot believe your eyes.

Magicians have profited greatly by fooling the eye.
Do not be to quick to accuse your neighbor
just because you think you saw something.

Defender Of The Fatherless 23:10-11

Defender Of The Fatherless
Proverbs 23:10-11

10
Do not move an ancient boundary stone
or encroach on the fields of the fatherless,
11
for their Defender is strong;
he will take up their case against you.

PCdc Commentary

Jesus possessed very little in life.
One thing he did have was his Father.
Not only his Heavenly Father, from eternity to eternity,
but also, his Earthly Father, who protected him until he died.

Jesus is the Defender of the Fatherless.
He protects the interests of the fatherless.
Jesus sacrificed himself so that he could share his Heavenly Father, as well.
