"And I will say to my soul,
Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years;
take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
But God said unto him,
Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee:
then whose shall those things be,
which thou hast provided?
So is he that layeth up treasure for himself,
and is not rich toward God."
Luke 12:19-21

Wisdom or Foolishness?

In the parable of the rich fool, who found comfort in his accumulation of worldly goods, many among us today, would look at this farmer as "wise". But God called him a "fool!"
How does God see us?
Many people, seen as wise in the eyes of the world, are fools in the eyes of God.
The atheist who audaciously affirms, "I know there is no God," is elevated upon the pedestal of intellectualism and wisdom by the world of science, yet God calls him a fool. "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" (Psalm 14:1).
Humans, who deny the existence of sin, and contend that their conduct should best be determined by the circumstances in which they find themselves, are applauded and lauded as the wise men of our age. God, in no uncertain terms, has said, "Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favor" (Proverbs 14:9).
The world yells out, "Do what makes you feel good ~ do your own thing!" God has decreed, "He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered" (Proverbs 28:26).
Our nation seems to be floating with the tide of moral and spiritual corruption. Are we drifting with the tide, or are we willing to stem the tide? I, personally, would rather be a fool in the eyes of a foolish world, than a fool in the eyes of my all-wise Creator.
For "If a wise man comtendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest" (Proverbs 29:9).
