I’ve never encountered a bear before.
But if i ever do.. i will be sure to blog about it.
Oh.. but I have seen commercials with bears in it, and it usually ends with the bear trying to attack the person or the person’s cereal! (p.s. i love monkey commercials)
So… all in all… BEARS are no good.
“Better to meet a grizzly robbed of her cubs
than a fool hellbent on folly.”
I just googled “Bear attacks” and almost everyone of the posts I have read say… “_______ was attacked and killed by a bear”
In the biblio it is really saying… that it is better to come in contact with a bear… not only a bear, but a bear that’s cubs were robbed from her.
Momma bears don’t like it that much when someone steals there cubs.. so if a human(s) comes into contact with the angry beast…. then I am positive that the person or person’s will not come out alive.
What does this bible verse mean then?
Go to a place where bears roam and willingly let them attack you? No.
Okay.. so i’ll come back to the bears in a minute..
Let’s focus on the ” Fool hellbent on folly”.
You know what a fool is… and Here is the definition for hellbent: Impetuously or recklessly determined to do or achieve something.
So A fool hellbent on folly= a stupid person recklessly determined to act stupid.
Then Why would the bible say.. it’s better to be like around an angry bear (who lost her babies) than to be around a foolish person who is downright determined to act stupid?
I think it’s because a person who is that FOOLish can affect you.
A person like the one in the verse can ultimately overtime ruin your relationship with God.
SO… it’s more worth it to be murdered by a bear… than lose a relationship with your Creator due to a foolish friend!
This verse is showing how serious a relationship with God is!!!
He loves you more than anyone!!!!
