A Short Study of Proverbs 12:15
“The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.” (Proverbs 12:15)
In the Bible, a fool is one who fails to recognize, seek, trust, worship, serve, and listen to God as He reveals Himself in the glorious Person and finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ. A fool will not listen to God’s Word because he thinks he knows better than God. It has been said that “there are young fools and old fools. An old fool listens to his critics, but a young fool listens to no one.” It is just as bad to be an old fool as it is to be a young fool.
What is the solution?
Don’t be a fool at all. Hearken unto God’s counsel. Don’t listen to your critics. Listen to God who speaks in the power of His Spirit by His Word in Christ.
