Fools and foolishness

May 13th, 2012

I have been reflecting on Psalm 14:1 this week. It says, “A fool says in their heart there is no God…”. As I have been thinking about this I have also been thinking about some other foolish behaviours.

Here are a few of the ones I have been thinking about. If you hover over the Bible reference (on my website) you will be able to read the verse…

1. A fool denies God’s existence – Psalm 14:1

2. A fool trusts in themselves only – Proverbs 28:26

3. A fool has no desire to get wisdom – Proverbs 1:7

4. A fool does not like discipline or correction – Proverbs 15:5

5. A fool finds pleasure in doing evil things – Proverbs 10:23

6. A fool is a rebellious person – Psalm 107:17

7. A fool loves to quarrel and argue with others – Proverbs 20:3

8. A fool does not keep his temper under control – Proverbs 29:11

These are only a few of the Bible verses that describe foolish behaviour, there are many more.

As I have reflected on this topic it is easy to see that being wise is about believing God exists, trusting in Him, following His ways, and being controlled in all we do.

Let’s purpose in our hearts today to be wise and honour God and His ways in all we do.

God Bless,
