      “For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so [is] the laughter of the fool: this also [is] vanity.”
      -Ecclesiastes 7:6  

      Everyone of us at some time Sisters have felt foolish. On other occasions, we have been victims of fools. From bullies in school to power-stricken bosses to rude neighbors, we deal with fools throughout life. Fools are vain and offer little more than stroking their own swollen egos.  

      For the definition of vanity, I turned to the old, reliable Merriam Webster which begins "something that is vain, empty or valueless" and includes "inflated pride in oneself or one’s appearance."  

      It is clear to see how the two ideas go hand-in-hand. Whether your child is getting harassed in school or you deal with an inconsiderate co-worker, remember fools are empty. There is little value in their laughter or statements other than to try to pump up their own egos.  

      Beloved resist the temptation to judge fools as that is vanity in itself. Just keep on going with confidence and leave fools behind. Life is too short to prevent progress by wasting time on fools.  

      If you find you’ve been humanly foolish, it’s time to ask for forgiveness. Real laughter is not at the expense of others. It brings joy not distress. Blessings.
