Taking the Bait

Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.  Proverbs, Chapter 26, verse 4.

Sometimes people treat others like a fishing tournament.  The fisherman baits his hook with some challenging remark, just enough to entice us to take the bait by challenging our religious beliefs.  Once we bite that lure and get involved in the interaction, the fisherman yanks the pole and starts to reel his catch in.  Usually, it’s best to resist the opportunity to respond to people when they set us up.

Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.
