Happy Thursday to you, Hey, Do you know what “Arachibutiphobia”is? You guessed it right. It is the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth. Wasn’t that a mouth full? Ha ha


So if you want to sound highly intelligent just blurt that word out.

In fact go ahead say it several times. How did that work for you? Did it make you feel empowered? Well, so much for useless trivia.


Our meditation today is found in Prov. 21:11 “If you punish a mocker, the simple minded become wise; if you instruct the wise, they will be all the wiser”.


This passage brings out three types of people:

1) scoffers - refuse to learn

  • Hate discipline - Prov. 9:7,8; 13:1; 15:12

  • Cause strife & conflict Prov. 22:10; 29:8

  • Arrogant. Prov. 21:24; 14:6

2) the simple- able to learn

Naive, gullible - Prov. 14:15


Fall prey to temptation out

of ignorance or oblivion

Prov. 7:7; 9:16; 22:3; 27:12


Poor reasoning Prov. 14:18


Accept discipline

Prov. 19:25: 21:11


3) Wise - always learning


Prudent, shrewd, cleaver

Prov. 22:3; 27:12


Note: Punishment isn’t wasted on the scoffer for the gullible

will be instructed by the

mockers consequences


In our day we are so taken up with immediate outcome that we fail to recognize the ultimate outcome.


Immediate - mocker rebels


Ultimate - the simple gains wisdom

The Wise gains

enhanced instruction


So Go With God for He will guide you into truth and truth will earn you respect, and respect will build confidence, and confidence will result in deeper relationships, relationships will open up new opportunities, these all will attract more truth-tellers. All of these begins with drawing near to our Heavenly Father and then Him guiding us into His truth-telling. How rich our benefits are as we draw close to Him. Dig deep for the world becomes a better place as millions of Christian’s study His Words (Bible) seriously.


You will never he disappointed as you search hard and discover and then apply the foundational truths that all of life is based on, into your walk.
