1 Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good! (Psalms 14:1)
There seems to be an awful lot of fools in the world today don’t you think? Do you hear the fools opening their mouths on TV glorifying themselves in front of the world. Bragging about their own accomplishments and behaving like prideful kings and queens. You can hear their spiteful words on the morning radio talk shows on your way to work or see them on the nightly news protesting a wooden cross displayed at your local city hall. Jesus said that satan is the God of this world, and I can surely tell by the flocks of fools I see in my everyday routine. To take a quote from Indiana Jones, “We are pilgrim’s in an unholy land.”
Do you ever feel like you are completely surrounded on all sides by these fools? Do you feel like you are the only wise person amongst your coworkers or even your own family members? Some of the most brilliant men and women of the world can tell you how many miles it is to the nearest star but they deny the God who made the star. Fools…
6 Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating. (Proverbs 18:6)
Do you know any fools like that? Always quick to violence and anger? How many times have you just walked outside your house to check your mailbox and had an unpleasant encounter with one of these fools just for saying good morning to them as they walked by? The fool doesn’t have Christ in their heart and without Him no wisdom can be found. We have been sent out as sheep amongst the wolves, as the wise amongst the foolish.
In Matthew chapter 24, Jesus tells us that in the end times sin will be rampant everywhere and the love of many will grow cold. To me that translates to fools will run rampant in the end times. Is that not a perfect depiction of how the world feels today? Do you ever feel like you are an endangered species in these latter times. Take comfort in the fact that Jesus has already told you the end from the beginning. Keep your eyes focused on Him. The night is always darkest before the dawn and all the fools rush in before the wise are all that remains.
Verse of the day:
15 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. (Ephesians 5:15)
Challenge of the day:
Today I challenge you to think of one person that you know is a fool and pray for them all day without ceasing that they will become wise. Lift that person up in prayer to the Lord continually throughout your day, and ask God to change that persons heart and receive Him as their savior. Remember that the earnest prayers of the Godly has great power and produces wonderful results.
