Foolish People

Psalm 59:6-8

6 They return at evening, they howl like a dog, And go around the city. 7 Behold, they belch forth with their mouth; Swords are in their lips, For, they say, “Who hears?” 8 But You, O LORD, laugh at them; You scoff at all the nations.

Foolish people open their mouths and constantly prove how foolish they are.  They show their ignorance with everything they utter.  They do not realize that every word that say is recorded to be read one day.  Their foolish words will be read back to them as they stand before God.  The very God which they say does not exist.  How foolish they are.

The Bible says that fool says in their heart that there is no God.  We are born knowing God.  It is something that is in kids.  Sadly, we teach kids to not believe in Him.  This happens both by our what we actively teach them and also by our actions.  We teach them not to believe a lot of the time, when we fail to live our what we say.  We must be careful not to teach our kids to be fools.  We must watch what we say, that we do not talk like a fool at any time.

Dear God, help me to not be a fool.  Help me to talk wisely and teach my kids about you.  Help me to know when to speak and when to keep my mouth shut.  May only good, Godly words come out of my mouth.  Sadly, that is not always the case.  Amen.
