I know an elderly lady that for health reasons can no longer eat the foods she once enjoyed. If she eats those foods she gets violently sick. So, it is like a battle between the mind and the body. The body says do not eat this or else you will get violently sick. The mind says up yours. I am going to do what ever I want to do. Then when the body rebels, they blame everybody but themselves. This is a daily routine with her.
As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly. Proverbs 26:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Her son makes nutritious, delicious foods that she should be eating but she steadfastly refuses to eat them. It constantly amazes him.
Doing wrong is fun for a fool, but living wisely brings pleasure to the sensible. Proverbs 10:23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Does that though not sound familiar?
How many times does our Father in Heaven bless us with advice and we reject it because we want something else. Then when we pay the penalty we blame everyone but ourselves. Jehovah is far wiser than us and loves us. So, His advice is for our own good.
“Wise men don’t need advice. Fools won’t take it.” Benjamin Franklin
When it discussed with her friends ( some of who claim to be Christians ) they just laugh at me and encourage her to just go out and do what she wants to. When the son explains that that will make her sick they just laugh at me again and they make jokes about it. Some of these so called friends are health care professionals. They should know better.
Although, I certainly would not consider their advice to be neither wise nor helpful.
“A wise man may look ridiculous in the company of fools.” Thomas Fuller
Please do not chose to walk down the path of stupidity. It is filled with pain and misery.
Prayer: Thank you Poppa for blessing me with the best mentor The Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher 2 Timothy 3:16 ) to guide me along the path of life You have chosen for me to take all the way to Heavens Gate. May I never be foolish enough to believe I am smarter than Him and ignore His advice.
I praise You in the name of the wisest of all Rabbis Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with the willingness to be obedient unto the best mentors guidance, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah
