Fool or Fool for Christ?

“We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored (1 Cor. 4:10)!”

Proverbs speaks of foolishness being bound up in the heart of a child. Unfortunately, many adults grow up in this world without proper discipline and in short continue to “act the fool.” The Hebrew language gives us a wide variety of definitions for foolish people. One thing is sure a fool does not travel the highway of holiness, which leads to God’s highest purposes and blessings in this life and the life hereafter.
