A Different kind of Foolishness

Psalm 53:1-3

I wonder what is a fool to you? What kind of people carry that name in your life?  The dictionary defines ’fool’ as someone silly and stupid, a person lacking judgment and sense. 

The Scripture defines ’fool’ as someone who fails to acknowledge God with his intellect and heart. It’s the person that refuses to see the facts and evidence about God and chooses to live his life based on that decision.

There was a man in the Bible whose name was ’fool’ or in Hebrew Nabal. He had an opportunity to participate in helping and having favour with the king of Israel, but his folly eventually destroyed his life and his home. He was senseless, harsh, rushed,  didn’t think about consequences and mocked the authorities. 

Sadly, in the end, every ’fool’ ends up being destructive to themselves and living a life full of regrets. 

When we fail to see God for who he is and who we are in that light of that truth we live our lives as senseless people who forever are trying to deny and resist their true nature. 

( See Romans 1:21, Romans 1:28, Romans 3:10-31)
