Two Kinds of Fools...

Today is April Fools Day, a day that is traditionally celebrated in the western world by playing pranks on other people.  I didn't have any pranks for you today, but I thought I'd pop over to share what the Bible says about fools. It seems there are two kinds of fools:
The fools who earn the wrath of God...
"The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God.' They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good," ( Psalm 14:1 NIV).

 "For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm," (Proverbs 1: 32, 33 NIV)
The fools who fall upon the mercy of God...
"The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice," (Proverbs 12: 15 NIV).

"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God," (1 Corinthians 1: 18 NIV).

"Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe," (1 Corinthians 1: 20, 21 NIV).

I do hope you are the latter and not the former today.  This is serious stuff--no prank at all. It's time to seek out this "foolishness of God" and find rest for your soul--it is a ridiculously simple answer to life's toughest question. God will not mock you, but He will not be mocked. Take it to heart!
