I was discussing things with a friend this morning and he threw out a verse that seems remarkably apt, given the tone of so much social media today: Proverbs 26:17, saying “Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears,” which seems perfect for those who live on Twitter.
He also threw out Ecclesiastes 7:10, which says “Say not, Why were the former days better than these?, for it is not from wisdom that you ask this,” as a valid criticism of modern conservatism.
I threw back Proverbs 27:2, as one of my favorite verses from the Proverbs: “Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips,” and I wanted to brag about how much I liked the verse, but something about that idea felt wrong. 🙂
