Dead Flies and Little Birds

From Series: Chasing The Wind

Ecclesiastes 10:1-20  (ID: 2300)

Chapter 10 of Ecclesiastes introduces us to the foolish person. Like dumb sheep, we are susceptible to making foolish choices that can destroy a good reputation, and being careless with our choices in this life is evidence that we are not prepared for the next. Alistair Begg explains that a foolish person can only be transformed by the wisdom of the Cross.


1Dead flies make the perfumer's ointment give off a stench;

so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
