Fools, Filth, and Fails

Pslam 14:1-3

“The fool says in his heart, “There is no God. “They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one.”

Sometimes my quirky since of humor takes me the wrong way at the wrong time. I was in a conservation with a self-professed atheists who said, “It’s not fair that we don’t have any special days to celebrate like you religious people!” I quickly said, “Oh, but you do; the first of April.” She said she didn’t understand. I said “April fools day!. The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” The conversation took a horrible turn after that. Taking a line from an old TV show; “Did I do that?”
We may not say with our mouth – “There is no God.” – but we live like there is no God. We say things we cannot retrieve. We do things that cost us dearly. We deliberately walk past opportunities that haunt us. Are we even worth saving?
Ephesians 2:4-5 ”But God, who is rich in mercy, because of his great love that he had for us, made us alive with Christ even though we were dead in trespasses.” So when we realize how low we can go – remember – BUT GOD!
