He Played The Fool.
She made a fool of herself.
Fools Rush In…
And the sayings go on and on.  We have come to know them and say them. But these days, do we really even know what a “fool” truly is or what that term means?
So I turned to Webster’s dictionary for the scoop. Here’s what I found:
fool — |ful|noun
a person who acts unwisely or imprudently; a silly personwhat a fool I was to do this.
• historical —a jester or clown, esp. one retained in a noble household.

With that, there’s a lot to be learned when it comes to the foolery department. The book of Proverbs has quite a bit to say about the FOOL. Check out what you can find in just one of that book’s chapters!
