Don’t Be an April Fool!

Here are ten wise sayings from the Bible fitting for April Fools Day:

  • The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1)
  • The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin. (Proverbs 10:8)
  • He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise. (Proverbs 11:29)
  • The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice. (Proverbs 12:15)
  • A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult. (Proverbs 12:16)
  • A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions. (Proverbs 18:2)
  • It is to a man’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel. (Proverbs 20:3)
  • As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly. (Proverbs 26:11)
  • He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe. (Proverbs 28:26)
  • A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control. (Proverbs 29:11)

Can a fool change? Probably not, but God can change a fool! (I can testify to that.) So don’t be an April Fool this year — or a January, February, March or any other type of fool either. “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
