 DAILY READINGS: Deuteronomy 3; Eccl. 3:16 to 4:16; Luke:7:1-29

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Psalm:14:1

Three fools stand out in Scripture. The atheistic fool does not believe there is God. His ways are corrupt and vile (Ps:53:1). The materialistic

fool is prosperous and optimistic of leading a good life but does not consider eternity (Luke:12:20). Finally there is the fool who does not believe the Scriptures (Luke:24:25-26). They are distressed when God works because they have not learned His ways. There is one other fool. Paul was prepared to be a fool for the sake of Christ (1 Cor:4:10). What kind of fool are you? —K. C. Ung

Fools in their heart believe and say, "That all religion’s vain;

There is no God that reigns on high, or minds th’affairs of men."

From thoughts so dreadful and profane, corrupt discourse proceeds;

And in their impious hands are found abominable deeds.—Isaac Watts
