April Fool?

With April Fool’s Day approaching and the anticipation of a prank or two, let us remember the words of David in Psalms 14:1, “The fool says in his heart, “God does not exist.” We must understand the seriousness of being a fool. Webster defines a fool as, “a person who acts unwisely or imprudently.”

 

It is then foolish and unwise to believe that God does not exist. Walking to work each morning, I am reminded of God’s creation. Birds are chirping, frogs croaking and one can literally see the grass grow. Without God there would be no life.

 

The “fools” want to discredit the existence of God. They want to think scientifically, logically, or even metaphysically about the process of life. They want to exclude the very thought of an almighty creator.

 

Don’t be one of those foolish people who say God does not exist. I encourage you to ponder your many blessings. Look to the heavens, seek Him in His word, just stand still and be amazed.
