He Is No Fool Who Give What He Cannot Keep

He Is No Fool Who Give What He Cannot Keep - Jim Elliot
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…
Proverbs 1:7

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.
Proverbs 28:26

4. When we speak rashly.

A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions…
Proverbs 18:2

5. When we lose control.

A fool is hotheaded and reckless
Proverbs 14:16

But the most grievous celebration of foolishness is this:
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
Psalm 14:1

Martyred Missionary Jim Elliot said it well: "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."
