Willing to Be Thought A Fool

“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.” – 1 Corinthians 3:18

One day, the great preacher of yesteryear Harry Ironside was traveling with friends on a ferry. They were having a glorious time singing praises to the Lord when someone critically interrupted them saying, “Who are you people? What are you doing?”

Dr. Ironside replied, “We’re just some Christians having a good time praising the Lord.” And the heckler replied, “You’re a bunch of fools!” Ironside said, “You’re right! We’re fools for Christ’s sake.”

The way of the Christian is sometimes foolishness in the eyes of the world. When was the last time you made a fool of yourself for Christ’s sake?

  1. I have been thought a fool many times in my life and I am quite certain there are those that still feel I am a fool for my love of the Lord, but it is okay I don’t mind at all. I had a man tell his wife that my friendship was no loss for her when she broke off our friendship because I would not shut up about God he told her i was too far gone. That actually made me smile I don’t mind being too far gone for the Lord I want to be further and further gone into the Lord as a matter of fact!

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
