Daily Proverb: Conceit Is Worse Than Being a Fool

11 Just as a dog returns to his vomit,
a fool repeats his folly.
12 Do you see someone who thinks himself wise?
There is more hope for a fool than for him!

~ Pr 26:11-12 (CJB)

As graphic as the analogy of a dog returning to its vomit is, that is being pictured as being better than being filled with conceit.

About John D Carmack

I am an avid computer geek and Christian. My parents were baptized in WCG around 1973, and a lot of it made sense even then. I went out "into the world" for a while, but God brought me back when the time was right. A true prodigal son, it has deepened my conviction that this world really does need the intervention of Jesus Christ to keep it from destroying itself.
