There are a lot of examples of scorners in the Bible, alongside the examples of wise, righteous men. Let's look at our verse for today:
"A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth."
What exactly is scorn? Webster gives us some synonyms: disdain, disrespect, derision, even mocking. Do you recall when Christ allowed himself to be taken prisoner, and came before Herod? Herod was really pleased that Pilate had sent Him over --- do you know why? Herod had heard of His miracles, and hoped that he would get to see one in person! When Jesus didn't comply, he showed his scorn and mocked Christ, and sent Him back to Pilate.
Solomon is saying here that a scorner will be unable to understand the things of God. Things in the Scripture can be very difficult for them, but for those who delight in the Word, and are willing to learn, and be enlightened, the same verses can be so very clear and plain to them. Jesus told us this in Matthew 13:11, when "He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given." Now, if they repented of their attitudes and truly changed, and wanted to learn, they would be like the others Jesus spoke of: "But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear."
When we don't understand the things that are divine, the course we should follow is to ask God to show us, and enlighten us. With prayer and study, the Scriptures will become plain to us, and be a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
