Foolishness

Monday, April 1, 2019

Consider the words of the Apostle Paul:

The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God. As the Scriptures say,

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and discard the intelligence of the intelligent.”

So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish. Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe. It is foolish to the Jews, who ask for signs from heaven. And it is foolish to the Greeks, who seek human wisdom. So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense.                                                               1 Corinthians 1:18-23

Holy Week is less than two weeks away. The most profound expression of sacrificial love ever. Yet to some it is foolishness.

Today as the jokes and the pranks come, may we be reminded by all the foolishness that we are heirs of unconditional love, sure hope and everlasting glory. Today may our hearts be full of the love of Christ and may that fullness of love overflow to every wise, wonderful, foolish and faithful soul that crosses our path.  Glory be to God.
