If a man is aware and declares that by what he is saying he appears to be making a fool of himself he is judging himself by the reactions of others and not by the truth of what he is saying. What he is saying is a true but difficult pill to swallow the hearers would rather call him a fool or worse than suffer the indignity of truth. Truth to the wilfully ignorant is a painful and distressing arrow once they have smarted at the sting they avoid further contact with even the thought of truth. Truth in matters of commandments and law of reasonable rational behaviour and necessary obedience is frowned upon and the messenger despised more than the harbinger of death. The people cried give me advice, give me encouragement, give me false hope, give me meds give me lies, give me anything but don’t give me the truth don’t worry me with absolute truth… A single seed of truth is of more value than a ton of encouragement a seed of truth will eventually flourish encouragement needs to be repeated and repeated and repeated until it loses any value it might have had.
