April Fool’s Day isn’t a church holiday, but God has lots to say about fools.
We celebrate foolishness:
1. When we neglect God’s Word.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline…
2. When we refuse correction.
Do not speak to a fool, for he will scorn the wisdom of your words.
Proverbs 17:10; 18:7
3. When we trust ourselves.
He who trusts in himself is a fool.
4. When we speak rashly.
A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions…
5. When we lose control.
A fool is hotheaded and reckless
But the most grievous celebration of foolishness is this:
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
Martyred Missionary Jim Elliot said it well: "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."
