Have you ever played the fool? King Solomon was the wisest mortal to ever live. Many of his wise sayings are captured in the biblical book of Proverbs where he had much to say about the destructiveness of being a fool. Solomon's work focused more on the fool than, say, the liar, the cheat, or the murderer. He taught that the fool is the broader category because it represents the condition of a proud heart.

Pride is antithesis of humility and wisdom, which is to be prized above all else. Consequently, we want to avoid the role of the fool at all costs. Solomon warned, "Before his downfall a man's heart is proud, but humility comes before honor" (Proverbs 18:12). Today, ask God to remove any hardness in your heart so that you may avoid playing the fool and its subsequent downfall. He will lift you up.
