34 Prayers to Election Day: The Fool

Timeless Wisdom,

What honor will we give a fool?

Answering a fool, makes a fool.

Give us your wisdom.

You do not put your message in the hands or mouth of a fool.

What honor will we give a fool?

Who elects a drunkard to watch their pocket?

Only a fool hires a fool.

Who elects a fool?

A fool foolishly follows the fool.

As a dog returns to its vomit,
a fool repeats their foolishness.

What honor will we give a fool?

A maniac is a lion in the road,
grabs a stray dog by the ears
and rushes into a quarrel not their own.

A maniac believes they are daring while playing a fool. 

A maniac deceives their neighbor
and says, “I was only joking!”

Stop the media that keeps the quarrelsome person kindling conflict.

Enemies disguise themselves with their lips,
but in their hearts they harbor deceit.

Though their speech is charming,
do not believe them,
abominations fill their heart.

They are not daring.

Their malice may be concealed by deception,
but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.

A lying tongue hates those it hurts,
and a flattering mouth works ruin.

What honor should we give a fool?


Proverbs 26
