Don't be a fool!

I wonder how many of you were pranked yesterday? Or were you the pranker?

When my kids were younger, they liked to try to trick us on April Fools day. Even when I was onto them, I would go along with the trick just so they could holler "April Fools!" and we could all have a good laugh.

Even though all of that was in good fun, the Bible says that a real fool is not a laughing matter...

  "A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion." Proverbs 18:2
***
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction."
Proverbs 1:7
***
"If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet." Proverbs 29:9
***
***
"A wise man's heart inclines him to the right, but a fool's heart to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
***
