Don’t Be a Fool!

You’ve probably heard the old story about a group of atheists who were trying to get their own holiday. Then someone pointed out to them that atheists already had a day—April Fools Day!

Psalm 14:1 says, “The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.”

According to the Bible, a fool is not someone who has a low IQ. Nor is it a person who stumbles through life making a lot of dumb mistakes. A fool is a person who lives as if there were no God.

On the surface it would seem that most of us would not have to worry about being labeled a fool. We would never dream of claiming that there is no God! If anyone asks, we are quick to assert our belief that there definitely is a God.

However, many people who claim to have faith in God live as if they believe otherwise. They seem to rarely think about God, and the decisions they make do not differ a great deal from those who make no profession of faith whatsoever.

Maybe today would be a good day to take some time to consider what it is we really believe about God. What are you saying in your heart?
