So I chose Valentine’s Day for my quote of the day, thinking it would be easy to write something about love, since I find myself madly in love with a truly wonderful man who is everything I ever wanted and better than I could ever have hoped for. While searching for the perfect love quote, I came across this:
“Love is the wisdom of the fool and the folly of the wise.” Samuel Johnson
It reminded me of the section in 1 Corinthians that we had for Bible study a couple weeks ago:
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.’ Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him,God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached tho save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block for Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of man, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.” 1 Corinthians 1:18-25
At the end of the Bible study, I played the following song for the group “God’s Own Fool” by Michael Card
So Happy Valentine’s Day to all the fools, and I hope you all find the one that you are madly in love with, if you haven’t already.Published in
