The Proverb in the Mouth of a Fool

“A proverb in the mouth of a fool is as useless as a paralyzed leg.”
– Proverb 26:7, NLT –

Imagine somebody comes to us and mentions the following advice:
– Honesty is the only policy
– Punctuality is the habit of a king
– Your word is your bond
– God is number one in life

However, as we get to know him better, we discover the following:
– He often lies to his clients
– He is often late for any appointment
– He tends to forget his promise
– He does not regular quiet time

Will his advice impact us in any way?
Pretty unlikely, is it?

Similarly, it is easy to give advice to others.
However, do we ourselves live out our own advice?
If we don’t, our advice is just as useless as proverb in the mouth of a fool.
