We have a yearly holiday that we have named April Fools’ Day and have designated it as a fun time to do practical jokes. But the truth from Scripture is no laughing matter when it comes to determining who is a fool.
A fool is one who says there is no God, and it is a very dangerous position to take.
“Better the poor whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse. Desire without knowledge is not good—how much more will hasty feet miss the way! A person’s own folly leads to their ruin, yet their heart rages against the Lord. Wealth attracts many friends, but even the closest friend of the poor person deserts them. A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will not go free.” Proverbs 19:1-5
Folly, perverse lips, living a life without knowledge, raging against the Lord...all descriptions of one who is lost. Being lost is hopeless. Being lost is living your life with no future.
In order to have the life we were designed to experience, we need Jesus in our lives. He is simply waiting for an invitation. Don’t be a fool and try to live your life without Him. He is waiting for you to ask Him into your life. It will be the most important decision you will ever make.
Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. Please forgive me and come into my life. Thank You for dying for me. Help me to live for You. Thank You.
