April Fools

God is Just

The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice. Proverbs 12:15

We all love a good joke or prank once in a while to break up the stress of the day ... maybe this is why April Fool's Day can be so much fun. But that one day of the year can also serve as a reminder that foolish thinking, pranks and schemes should be the exception and not the rule in our life; that while life should be enjoyed, foolishness and folly have consequences.

The Bible speaks at great length on the topic of foolishness. Solomon, the wisest man to ever live writes in the Book of Proverbs that fools do not seek God's wisdom and understanding. That they do not follow God, but rather live by their own set of rules. But, it is written that one day God will judge us all and His justice will prevail. And, while our pride may lead us to believe we will have the last laugh, are we truly prepared for Judgement Day? No matter the recklessness or how foolish our past, God's mercy and grace is still available to us today -- it's never too late.

Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise. Proverbs 19:20

Because God is just, with Christ we will face the final judgement with confidence.
