Proverbs 9:7-8 Don't waste your time and effort with scoffers
A "scoffer" is a person who hears the truth and ridicules or mocks it. It is foolhardy to attempt to reason with or correct such a person. Don't waste time with these people, they will try to hurt you and then laugh about it.! We must learn WHERE to sow; we have to learn to recognize GOOD GROUND! You can identify a wise man by the way he reacts to the truth!
