On this April Fool's day is it worth thinking through the fact that every generation produces it's fair share of fools. No matter how much we study history, people still keep repeating the same mistakes from the past. It is little wonder that Solomon has nearly 30 references to fools or foolish ways in the book of Proverbs.
Proverbs 1:22 -“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?
Proverbs 13:20 - Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
Proverbs 23:9 - Do not speak to fools, for they will scorn your prudent words.
So, before we point our fingers at the 'fools' out there, let us make every effort to check our lives first.
Living in Grace
