By Don Ruhl
Somethings just do not go together. Fire and water do not mix. The two things Solomon that listed do not go together,
Luxury is not fitting for a fool,
Much less for a servant to rule over princes.
– Proverbs 19.10
Luxury belongs to those who work for it in wisdom. Servants serve princes, they do not rule over them. Therefore, do not give generous gifts to those who have not worked wisely to achieve them. And do not appoint servants to rule.
Exceptions exist, but keep them as exceptions.
- Can you name some servants who became leaders?
- What would luxury do to a fool?
