What if our crisis of character flows, not from a lack of integrity, but from a lack of wisdom? Perhaps we are not hypocrites, but fools, for hypocrites know what to do and only pretend to do it, while fools don’t even know what to do. Fools do one thing and expect another result. And fools, as they are portrayed in the Bible, are not the uneducated, but those blind to their ways. They cannot see the consequences of their actions. They will not accept guidance and “when people do not accept guidance, they run wild,” (Proverbs 29:18, NLT).
