Big news! I have been invited to Washington D.C. to meet with President Biden and a commission he is putting together on creativity. I think I was selected because of this blog. The President wants to find different ways to get young people to express themselves, to set goals, and have dreams to live for. Okay, April’s fool.
To be honest, I have never understood this day.
One year I was asked to be at a wedding. I traveled hundreds of miles to get there and the next day, as I was on my way to where the event was to be held, it dawned on me the date was April 1st. When I saw the engaged couple I said, “If this is an April fool’s joke you’re dead!” They laughed and then assured me it wasn’t. I guess it does make it easier to remember the wedding date.
You know what? There are fools year round, not just in April, and people do foolish things all the time. Believe it or not, I’ve been known to do a foolish thing here and there, but that’s another blog I don’t want to write! The most foolish person is the one who does not believe in God.
“The fool says in his heart, there is no God.”
Psalm 14:1 (NIV)
There are people who say, “There is no God.” I wonder what they will say when they stand in front of him? How do they arrive to this opinion? I’m not sure, but the Bible says God gave everyone a measure of faith. I tend to think when these people boast about their opinion they have a measure of doubt. I’m sure they hope they are right.
One might live like a fool, but you don’t have to die a fool. You can believe in God, accept his Son, and then ask him to help your unbelief. You know what? He will.
