Mr. Smith completes his two part Bible study on the fool by looking at the foolishness we see in society and what we need to do in order not to make the same mistakes. We see foolishness increasing in this world as people turn further and further away from the word of God. So when we seek solutions to issues in or lives we need to apply the wisdom given to us in the Bible. Especially we need to draw on the many examples the Bible provides us from the life of jesus Christ.
