Just be aware. Foolishness can destroy wisdom, and even honor.

As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. (Ecclesiastes 10:1, NIV)

Just to be clear.

Dead flies in perfume make it stink, And a little foolishness decomposes much wisdom.  Wise thinking leads to right living; Stupid thinking leads to wrong living. (Ecclesiastes 10:1-2, MSG)

Just so you get it.

Dead flies cause the ointment of the perfumer to putrefy [and] send forth a vile odor; so does a little folly [in him who is valued for wisdom] outweigh wisdom and honor. A wise man’s heart turns him toward his right hand, but a fool’s heart toward his left. (Ecclesiastes 10:1-2, AMP)

Prayer- Lord, may we never turn from the wisdom that is Christ. Amen.
