Proverbs 9:7-9

"He who corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself,
And he who reproves a wicked man gets insults for himself.
Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you,
Reprove a wise man and he will love you.
Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser,
Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning."

Proverbs has to be one of my all time favorite books in the Bible. Lots of good advice there~plain ol' common sense. :)

My favorite too, Carol.

Ref. to your comment: I didnot write that list of things to ponder. It came to me in email, so I don't know who wrote it.
