This is not an apology for not posting, but an observation: when I write Proverbs daily, I do better with every other aspect of my writing efforts. When I don’t, I have trouble. There is something to this about building wisdom and focus.

Proverbs 22:10 tells us how to handle people who are divisive. Drive them out, and end the controversy. I think it’s worth noting that the scoffer is one who simply finds fault, not one with real questions, doubts, or concerns. Also, scoffing is a character flaw. A scoffer can agree with you—but they’re still a scoffer. Boot them from the discussion.

 

Keep the person who is willing to learn, even if they are contrary most of the time.

 

Proverbs 22:20 is the first half of a segment about the value of writing important information. Keep it written down, keep it recorded for your sake and the sake of others.
