God still loves the fool. Even though the fool has rejected God, God desires to rescue the fool from His folly, so that he can know the Truth and be saved.
The Bible is available to us and every Believer has the Holy Spirit as a guide. The challenge is whether we will use the tools God has provided us with; or if we will continue to refuse to study His Word. The choice is ours. Will we be simple? Or, will we be prudent?
The heart of man was made by God and for God. Therefore, lasting joy can be found nowhere else: real joy is only found in the heart yielded to God. Without, God there is only sorrow covered with laughter and heaviness (depression) covered with mirth.
Spiritual health is critical to our physical well-being. Therefore, it is important that we allow God to govern our hearts and that we protect what enters our hearts. Scripture tells us to put our hope/trust in God, not in man (Psalm 118:9, 146:3).
…to the poor, to the weak the downtrodden, to the single mother with too many children, to the homeless man on the corner, our ATTITUDE should always be one of MERCY; not indifference, not judgment, not anger, but MERCY.
…it is only when we fear the Lord that we will even have a desire to submit to His prescription for our iniquities: it is only when we fear the Lord that we will want to leave the evils with which we have become comfortable.
It is especially in times of trouble that the righteous and the good, must seize the opportunity and use it to share the Gospel: to shed abroad the light that is Jesus.
The wise man fears (respects, reveres, and lives in awe of) God. He looks to God for truth. So the wise man finds out what God says in His Word about life, about good and evil. And then the wise man does the good and departs from evil.
It is the father who points the “arrows” (his children) and sends them on their journey (Psalm 127:4-5) through life. And, it is the good father that uses God’s word to shape the arrows before they are sent.
The “good” the unsaved man/woman seeks to fulfill their own self-centered desires and not the desires of God. Therefore, everything done by the unsaved is an abomination, repulsive, to God. Only actions of faith will please Him.
