    Dear Pastor Isaac Thank you so much for bringing that up ~ such an interesting and thought provoking scripture. Prov 26:4-5 NASB says “Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
    Or you will also be like him.
    Answer a fool as his folly deserves,
    That he not be wise in his own eyes.” LOL. Pretty interesting and full of wisdom. My thoughts on this verse — I think the verse is actually in agreement with this one although different parts might have been emphasized lol. Replying someone quickly with an insult when you have been insulted may be tempting, but when we do this we are in fact stooping down to the individual’s level. “fool” as described in Prov 26:4-5. But verse 5 also says “answer a fool as his folly deserves…” I believe this means we need to apply wisdom when responding, and our response can in fact be a blessing (even if it is not initially received well) :) Thanks again for sharing! What are your thoughts on the scripture sir?

    Pastor Isaac… To continue that thought, I am reminded that there is room for anger and disappointment, but our response should not have the goal of “paying someone back” when they have wronged us. Instead, our goal should always be “constructive” not “destructive”. Reminds me of when Jesus got angry in the temple… More on Constructive Anger here => http://www.jollynotes.com/constructive-anger-examples/ Thanks again for bringing this up sir! Good thoughts!
