The month of Fools

April is known as the month of 'Fools' in some circles. I am not sure about the whole month, but at least the first of April is called "April Fools Day." In keeping with this theme I came across some interesting quotes on being a Fool, as well as some thought provoking words from the Scriptures.

Enjoy these thoughts and may we all ask God to help us act with less foolish than in the past.

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” - Søren Kierkegaard

“Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn—and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.” - Dale Carnegie

“When we are born, we cry that we are come to this great stage of fools.” - William Shakespeare, King Lear

How does a man become wise? The first step is to trust and reverence the Lord! Only fools refuse to be taught. Listen to your father and mother. What you learn from them will stand you in good stead; it will gain you many honours.”Proverbs 1:7-9

Ephesians 5:15-16 - So be careful how you act; these are difficult days. Don’t be fools; be wise: make the most of every opportunity you have for doing good.

Living in Grace
