Ignorance Is Not a #Virtue –

Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit (Prov 26:4-5) ~ No man can tame the tongue and there are many that pride themselves in not even trying to. There are those that make it their life’s mission to verbally degrade, disrespect and demoralize others. They will say anything just to get a rise out of someone else. This is their ego “stage”. The reaction they get simply feeds into it and encourages them to evolve in their self promotion.  Rather than feed into foolishness, see that you don’t repay evil with evil! Don’t stoop to their level of ignorance just to answer or rebuke them. Sometimes the best way to deal with and shut down people like this is to ignore them. One thing a grandstander loves is an audience. Don’t give them one and eventually they’ll exit stage left! Give no place to the devil; Rather, resist the devil and he will flee.
