Folly of Fools

There are fools in the world. A fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” What does this mean? This means that a man can so deceive himself that he imagines a world in which there are no consequences. He assumes he can do whatever he can get away with. This delusion lasts for a while. Such a man does what he pleases without concern for God. He muddles along without a care in the world assuming that his ways will not require an accounting.

         But there is a God and He has made the world in such a way that a man reaps what he sows. But like a field planted in the spring, we cannot tell the nature of the crop until the plant is up. Sometimes we pull up the little shoots knowing they do not belong. Sometimes we wait a bit longer, unsure of the plant. Sometimes we wait until harvest and then separate the wheat from the chaff. But a reckoning is coming. The fruit will be revealed and some of it will be for life and some will only be for burning. But a fool is only a fool until his eyes are opened. It is time to wake up.
