Veggie Wisdom…Or Not :-)

“Excellent speech is not fitting for a fool, Much less lying lips for a noble.”
Proverbs 17:7

If any of ya’ll have watched the Veggie Tales version of Esther at least a dozen times (smile), you’ll remember the scene where Haman (Mr. Lunt) tries to bribe Mordechai (Pa Grape) into bowing before him; having just had dinner with the King and Queen. Pa Grape- I mean, Mordechai, shoots back with this verse- Proverbs 17:7.
Until our Scripture study this morning I didn’t realize that he was actually quoting Scripture, I always thought that he was just “speaking the wisdom of an old man.” When I saw this verse on the other side of the page we were discussing, I thought “Oh, so that’s where that came from! Neat…”
So anyway, I just wanted to share that. Smile
