Honoring Fools

Like tying a stone in a sling is the giving of honor to a fool. Proverbs 26:8

What good is a stone as ammunition if you can’t use it? Well, it’s worthless. Perhaps an up-to-date version would be what good is a rifle if it jams on you? Again, worthless.

You see foolish men and women receiving honors right and left, and often for the most mundane accomplishments. For example, when Yasser Arafat received the Nobel Peace prize in 1994 (awarded to Arafat, Shimon Peres, and Yitzhak Rabin “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East”), it told us more about those awarding the prize than the actual recipient. Still, though, it was a meaningless award given to someone who was the direct opposite of a peace-loving man.

Another more recent example was when Columbia University “honored” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran, by allowing him to speak on campus last year. This man wants to wipe the nation of Israel off the map and has the capability to do it.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. These are just two vivid examples of foolish but powerful men who want to see Israel’s destruction.
