“The discerning sets his face toward wisdom,
but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.” – Proverbs 17:24
Wisdom keeps us on the path of life but doesn’t always mark it out for us far into the future. Even if the fool identifies a correct future destination or goal, the path to get there might bend in ways they won’t see by looking only at the end goal. The discerning focus on the daily task and the daily bread.
