WHEN WILL THEY EVER LEARN?
One of the wisest human beings who ever walked the planet, King Solomon, sagely observed in Proverbs 26:11 that “like a dog that goes back to his own vomit, so is a fool who always returns to his foolishness”. How often do we humans intuitively know that we have engaged in something that ultimately isn’t very good for us and then repeat it again anyway? Solomon really couldn’t have summed up this behavior any more succinctly or with a more direct imagery for us to ponder. Our savior must shake his head a lot.
