Scorn of Others

The scornful attitude is a byproduct of pride and a spirit of religion. Here is a selection of verses that speak to the issue.

Ps 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

Pr 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

Pr 3:34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.

Pr 14:6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.

Pr 22:10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.

Let's look at the first one, from Psalm 1.

Ps 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

This tells us among other things, that those who are not scornful will be blessed. To invert that, those who are scornful will miss being blessed. The phrase seat of the scornful speaks of authority. Often the scorners are in some position of authority where they pass on their scornful attitude to their flock. One of the blessings they will miss is wisdom, as Psalm 14 points out.

Pr 14:6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.

It's easy to figure out what the scripture is telling us here. Scorning becomes a stumbling block. It prevents you from getting wisdom and keeps you in the ranks of the immature. If you repent and humble yourself, things will change for the better.
