Fools Suffer From Ignoring Issues
Proverbs 26:3 (NIV)

3) A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,
and a rod for the backs of fools!

A fool is driven by circumstances rather than planning.
This is punishing and eliminates the best solution.

No Honor For The Idiot
Proverbs 26:1 (NIV)

1 Like snow in summer or rain in harvest,
honor is not fitting for a fool.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Why is honor not fitting for a fool?
Because an idiot has no care for his actions.
