The Person People Pity

When I was a kid growing up in the 80’s, one of my favorite tv shows was The A-Team.  My favorite character on the A-Team was BA Baracus, a role played by Mr. T.

“I pity the fool…” is something he said often, and whenever he used this phrase, it wasn’t meant as a compliment.  It was always directed toward someone who was a complete idiot.

Proverbs 26:11 gives a pretty descriptive word picture of what a fool looks like.  It says, “As a dog returns to it’s vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness.”

We all make errors in judgment, but fools continually repeat the same negative behavior patterns over and over again.

They refuse to learn from their mistakes, and so the Bible compares their actions to a dog that throws up and then later returns to eat what it has thrown up.  Don’t be that person other people pity because of the poor choices they continually make.  Learn from your errors in judgment, and refuse to repeat your foolishness.

T. J.
