God’s Standards Convey Eternal Esteem
As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool. (Proverbs 26:1 KJV)
It is never appropriate for a fool to be honored.
However, in this world that is exactly what often happens. Foolish people are esteemed and valued while those people knowledgeable in things of God are trampled down and persecuted.
The comparison used in this scripture is of snowfall occurring in the Summer season rather than in the middle of Winter. This would be highly odd and out of place in the context of “normal” events of nature.
God’s righteous ways are not aligned to the ways of the god of this world. Things that this world deems appropriate are detestable and abominable in the eyes of a holy and righteous God.
