The Fools Answer a Matter Before Hearing It – Reflection on Proverbs 18:13

The Fools Answer a Matter Before Hearing It, Reflection on Proverbs 18:13

Today’s Gospel

He that answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him. – Proverbs 18:13


It always happens in our life. When chatting, if one interrupts another before the speaking is finished, and continue to pour out his own words eloquently, the one who interrupts others will be regarded as a person of poor caliber. In fact, it related to the sense of man. Interruption without waiting for others to finish talking shows a lack of reason that shall be possessed by normal humanity. What is the root cause that leads to such a behavior? God’s word says, “Man’s corrupt disposition stems from his being poisoned and trampled upon by Satan, from the egregious harm that Satan has inflicted upon his thinking, morality, insight, and sense. It is precisely because these fundamental things of man have been corrupted by Satan, and are utterly unlike how God originally created them, that man opposes God and does not understand the truth. Thus, changes in man’s disposition should begin with changes in his thinking, insight and sense that will change his knowledge of God and his knowledge of the truth.” We are too deeply corrupted by Satan, have long lost the reason, and don’t have normal humanity. Flaunting ourselves in all things always makes others feel repulsed and disgusted instead.
