Strange But True

Strange But True by Laurie McTier

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." Psalms 14:1

In the sixteenth century, some countries celebrated the start of their new year on April 1st. In 1562, Pope Gregory introduced a new calendar where the New Year fell on January 1st. In those days, technology was not as advanced as it is today, so news traveled very slowly. Many continued to celebrate New Year's Day on April 1st. The individuals who had heard the news played pranks or tricks on those who had not heard and called them "April Fools".

Biblically speaking, the only real fool in today's society is the individual who does not let his or her life count for God. The wise man will receive his reward as he has sought to honor God with his life and has endeavored to tell others about Him. The fool is the man who has chosen to deny God or has become disobedient to His commandments.

We are God's Ambassadors. He wants us to allow our life to count for Him, to make an impact in our society. He has given to us the charge of the Great Commission so that we will tell others of His love and sacrifice that they may have eternal life. May the Great Commission not become the Great Omission in our life.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for wisdom as you seek to allow your life to count for God.
