Bible Journey – Day 11
The Intoxication of Passion
Do not make friends with an angry person, and do not associate with a wrathful person, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.
(Pro 22:24-25 NET.)
You ever have that one friend whose social parameters were a little bit… different from the rest of the world? Maybe they were just oblivious to the stares of bystanders? Class clowns and divas seem to have this attribute in spades, and there is something intoxicating about being their friend. As long as you are not on the receiving end of the torrent of craziness, there’s something impressive and awe-inspiring about watching a completely unselfconscious tirade. It gets your adrenaline going, and you just can’t believe what you’re seeing! WOW!
But the wisdom of Solomon calls us back from intoxication to a sober-minded reflection. Why do you think it is so dangerous to be friends with an angry person? What kind of snare is Solomon warning against?
In HIS love,
