Proverbs 19:3

“When a man’s folly brings his way to ruin,

    his heart rages against the Lord.”

Proverbs 19:3 ESV

The fool is revealed in two ways in this verse. First, note that his own folly brings ruin. The natural end of folly is ruin.

Second, the fool does not accept his own responsibility in creating his circumstance; he blames someone else. In this case, “his heart rages against the Lord.” Raging against the Lord demonstrates his folly in extra measure. Not only does he blame someone else, he blames the one who would guide him to wisdom.

When you find yourself in a fix do you catch yourself blaming someone else? Do you blame God?
