APRIL FOOLS

The best April Fool joke I remember, was published by the East Kilbride News in the 1980s (everything good happened in the 1980s!). It showed a block of high rise flats, with an extenision built out from the living room of one of the flats. It looked so realistic, until you read the reporter's name Mr I Fulham. As with all aspects of human life, the Bible has something to say about this. The Apostle Paul said "we are fools for Christ", indicating that as Christians we will be considered foolish by some for following Jesus. But as Paul also said on another occasion, "we are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation". I would rather be a fool for Christ than be a fool for anybody else, and one day God will honour those who honour Him.
