The 7 commandments of foolishness teaching series is borne out of a desire to push people more towards wisdom principle, with the thinking that if we are aware and turn our hearts against foolishness, perhaps we can move in the direction of wisdom.
This brings us to the question, What does it take to be foolish? Proverbs 9:1-12 emphasizes the importance of wisdom in our daily living, telling us about wisdom’s invitation to everyone to eat of her food, drink of her wine, and receive life in the process.
“11Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life. 12If you will become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.”
Let us look at some perspectives of wisdom, thereafter we will go onto discussing the first commandment of foolishness.
Proverbs chapter 4 and verse 7 says that getting wisdom is the most important thing. There is a premium placed on wisdom throughout the bible and its importance in our lives cannot be over-emphasized, considering that there is the foolish and the wise way of doing everything; there is the foolish way of handling a marriage and there is the wise way of handling it; there is the foolish way of working on an official task and there is the wise way; there is the foolish way of approaching your academics and there is the wise way… The list is endless
