Stone is heavy and sand a burden,
but provocation by a fool is heavier than both.
As tiresome and ongoing as the most basic of physical labors, so is the provocation of a fool. In every situation, it seems like there is at least one fool present. And that ongoing provocation most definitely can be burdensome.
As you go through your day today, pray that God gives you the strength to endure these provocations the way he has done.
