Proverbs 10:23 – Making sport of mischief

Proverbs 10:23
23 It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.

-What do sports mean to you?  For some, it is something that we watch or play in order to pass the time.  Others participate with the express purpose of outdoing others and coming away victorious.  These are the mindsets that the Bible applies to those who do mischief.  Fools will do mischief out of boredom to pass the time.  They may do mischief in order to gain some advantage or victory over someone they perceive as an enemy.  When mischief or strife finds you, do you see it as something that should be avoided or do you take it as a challenge?
