Discussion for Proverbs 27

  • A disciple
    "Though you should grind a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him." While the good and righteous want to give every opportunity to the evildoers to clear themselves; at some point the wicked must be judged for their crimes? So long as the lawless are allowed to continue unrestrained, so long will they not change. Kindness is to them, a weakness!
