8Like tying a stone in a sling is the giving of honor to a fool.

26: 8   When discord or dissension occurs in a group, the leader may try to make the disruptive person loyal and productive by giving him or her a place of privilege or responsibility. This usually doesn’t work. It is like tying a stone to the sling of a slingshot— giving this person special consideration may actually backfire and hurt the leader and the group. The dissenter’s new power may be just what he or she needs to manipulate the others.

Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible

My best analogy of this today is the world caving in , even churches compromising God's word and allowing sin to prevail in the society we are forced to live with. There are so many things that have been given power and acknowledgement that are strictly contrary to the Bible and for whatever reasons we come up with to compromise with, WE WILL have to answer for our actions. And it seems that the more we give in to the evil that is so prevalant today, the more they want us to give them!!!

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure we are rewarding the RIGHT people in society and churches for there right way of living !!!! NOT GIVING it to the ones that cause the most disruption !!!!! by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
