// READ: ECCL. 10:1-10 //
10 As dead flies give perfume a bad smell,
so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right,
but the heart of the fool to the left.
3 Even as fools walk along the road,
they lack sense
and show everyone how stupid they are.
4 If a ruler’s anger rises against you,
do not leave your post;
calmness can lay great offenses to rest.

5 There is an evil I have seen under the sun,
the sort of error that arises from a ruler:
6 Fools are put in many high positions,
while the rich occupy the low ones.
7 I have seen slaves on horseback,
while princes go on foot like slaves.

8 Whoever digs a pit may fall into it;
whoever breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake.
9 Whoever quarries stones may be injured by them;
whoever splits logs may be endangered by them.

10 If the ax is dull
and its edge unsharpened,
more strength is needed,
but skill will bring success.

The bluntness of your axe head is a function of lack of wisdom. Much strength and efforts are required where there is lack of wisdom.
Four factors determine your effective cutting edge
1. Your strength of impact
2. Accuracy in direction
3. Object to cut in the proportion of its dimensions
4. Time Scope of duration of the work.

PRAYER: Pray for the Lord to sharpen your cutting edge.
