SAY WHAT? Simple folk do simple stuff all the time, but this way of living is wrong. After all, fools don’t like to learn.
BREAKDOWN: Change. Whether it’s at school this week, at home today, or how we act in private when we think no one is looking or listening, we all know we have some things in our lives we need to change. Solomon is trying to get what he calls “simple” people to change. Are you simple? Have you taken the easy way out of life, always doing what your peeps do without really applying yourself? Today that ends. Don’t be like the simple ones, or like the mockers who mocked the religion, or like the fools (great word choice) who hate knowledge. Change, Change and take everything to the top level. Be true to God’s ways, and get knowledge as you go.
LIVE IT OUT: Stop doing what is easy for you. Stop working beneath your potential. Stop following those fake friends that are supposed to be “Whatz Hot” because they don’t do homework, they cut school, they watch the wrong things on TV late at night (You know). Be your own person and CHANGE.
PRAYER: Lord, help me today to live my life at the right level. Help me do what I am supposed to do and not just get by on what is easy so I can fit in with friends and peers. God help me to change 4-real. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen."
