Who Is the Real Fool?


BIBLE MEDITATION:

Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 1 Corinthians 3:18

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

One day, a great preacher of yesteryear, Harry Ironside, was traveling with friends on a ferry. They were having a glorious time, singing praises to the Lord when someone interrupted them, saying critically, “Who are you people? What are you doing?”

Dr. Ironside replied, “We’re just some Christians having a good time, praising the Lord.” The heckler replied, “You’re a bunch of fools!” Ironside said, “You’re right! We’re fools for Christ’s sake.”

ACTION POINT:

The way of the Christian is sometimes foolishness in the eyes of the world. When was the last time you made a fool of yourself for Christ’s sake?
