THE POOR MAN’S WISDOM IS DESPISED

A thought to ponder …

False doctrine is often accepted because it is proclaimed by a famous man.

Truth is often rejected because it is proclaimed by an obscure and unknown man.

Ecclesiastes 9:16 Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.

Keil and Delitzsch Commentary:

… as a rule his words are unheeded,

… for the crowd estimate the worth of him, whom they willingly hear, according to the outward respect in which he is held.
