Thought for 9.23.10

Do not answer fools according to their folly, 
   or you will be a fool yourself. 
Answer fools according to their folly,
   or they will be wise in their own eyes. (Proverbs 26:4-5)

 This is one of my favorite passages of Scripture, and one that I wrestle with frequently.  How important is the issue at hand?  Just how far off is the person I'm addressing?  Just how certain am I of my position (okay, well, that isn't an issue all that often)?  Sometimes I wonder if I don't need in more cases not to answer the fools.

But if we all did that, whatever would happen to the blogosphere?
