April Fool’s Day

What day seems more fitting to list some things God has to say about fools. My personal favorite has got to be Proverbs 26:11.

The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God,’ they are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; There is no one who does good.” (Psalm 53:1)

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)

The wise will inherit honor, but fools display dishonor.” (Proverbs 3:35)

O naive ones, understand prudence; and, o fools, understand wisdom.” (Proverbs 8:5)

The wise of heart will receive commands, but a babbling fool will be ruined.” (Proverbs 10:8)

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man is he who listens to counsel.” (Proverbs 12:15)

He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.” (Proverbs 13:20)

A fool does not delight in understanding, but only in revealing his own mind.” (Proverbs 18:2)

For a fool speaks nonsense, and his heart inclines toward wickedness: to practice ungodliness and to speak error against the LORD, to keep the hungry person unsatisfied and to withhold drink from the thirsty.” (Isaiah 32:6)

Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.” (Matthew 7:26)

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:21-22)

For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18)
