April 1st

It is said this is "April Fools' Day" or "All Fool's Day".

There is, however, a clear definition of 'the every day fool':
Psalm 14:1
1 "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."

The contrast between the wise & the fool:
Proverbs 1:7
7 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."

The ways of the fool, written about 2000 years ago, are sadly still so true today:
Romans 1:16-32
16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
17 "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith."
18 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;"
19 "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them."
20 "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:"
21 "Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened."
22 "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,"
23 "And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things."
24 "Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:"
25 "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."
26 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:"
27 "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."
28 "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;"
29 "Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,"
30 "Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,"
31 "Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:"
32 "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."


Be not a fool; be wise. Trust in the work of the Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ , and develop a close, personal relationship with Him.
I know you will never regret it!
