Under Gods Command

Proverbs 18.02 – A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions. 

Wisdom and truth are not important to a fool; he is more interested in his own thoughts. When understanding and his opinions have a collision, he always follows his heart. He loves his own thoughts and desires, and he wants to tell and promote them as widely as possible.

Here is the basic error of the fool – he values his opinions and preferences more than truth. He is in love with himself, obsessively so. And he is always seeking an audience to share his thoughts. This folly is widely promoted today, the perilous times of the last days, when men love their own selves and reject sound doctrine (II Tim 3:1; 4:2-4).

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; (6) in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
