Proverbs, Chapter 14, Verse 6 (Amplified Bible)
A scoffer seeks Wisdom in vain [for his very attitude blinds and deafens him to it], but knowledge is easy to him who [being teachable] understands.
I do know a scoffer or two, but am I one? Don’t want to be blind and deaf to wisdom! Like a pastor I knew once said, “The awful thing about [self] deception is it’s so deceptive.”
