Are You a Fool or a Coward?

I came across this blog entry and thought I’d share it here, as much as to let anyone else read it as to remind myself from time to time.

It gets people thinking where they fall in this line of statements…I really do like what it has to say, and I pray that I will ALWAYS be thought the fool as long as it’s for the cause of Christ! As the words of Nichole Nordeman’s Song “Fool For You” state:

I would be a fool for you all because you asked me to.
A simpleton who’s seemingly naive,
I do believe You came and made Yourself a fool for me.

And in the words of Paul:

Because of Christ we are thought of as fools, but Christ has made you wise. We are weak and hated, but you are powerful and respected.

1 Corinthians 4:10 (CEV)

Be blessed and foolish – be daring and daft – be a force to be reckoned with that “confounds the ways of the wise” and storms the gates of hell and makes them tremble with the power of the LORD! Let’s not retreat but move forward in grace and power and love!
