“The Foolish”

It is so sad there are people who do not want the knowledge of God in their life and will totally reject his way. Scripture says such a person is considered to be a fool. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction”(Proverbs 1:7).

 
    Many take the scripture taken from Matthew 7:1 out of context by saying your not suppose to judge and completely leave out verse two altogether which is what reward we receive for the just choice we make. Jesus called out the Pharisees for such behaviour, how they would make sure their outward appearance was all beautiful, yet neglect to make the correct judgement of a situation therefore calling them fools. “Ye fools did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also? But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you. But woe unto you Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgement and the Love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone”. (Luke 11:40-42).
 
    Paul did not steer away from letting the Galatians know how foolish it was for them to believe they were correct in not obeying the truth Jesus and posed the question to them if they receive the Holy Spirit does that make them perfect to continue to live in the flesh? “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”.(Galatians 3:1-3).
 
    A foolish person will think their way is correct even when wrong, yet to the one who follows right council is considered wise and a fools anger is quickly known! “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto council is wise. A fool’s wrath is presently known: but a prudent smart) man covereth shame”.(Proverbs 12:15,16). It really makes a person wonder with all the wonderful gifts of Blessings a person can be given for following a right and just way, why would anyone consider to walk contrary to God’s set forth just ways in the earth? It is written only a fool would say there is no God. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good”. (Psalm 53:1).
 
    I love this passage for it goes on to say that God looks down from heaven to see is anyone does seek him? (Psalm 53:2).”God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God”. He truly does look down from heaven to see us and what we’re doing.He’s not at such a far away place hidden and he can’t see us! He did the same thing when he was checking to see what they were doing when building the tower of babel.(Genesis 11:4-7).
 
    When we live a life in the sight of God, How can anyone feel he doesn’t see them and know what their doing. The fool will even mock at the sin in their life for this very reason thinking God pays no attention to our daily living. “The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit. Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour”.
 (Proverbs 14:8,9).
