Foolishness, Indeed!

Psalm 14:1-2         
1 Fools say in their hearts, There is no God. They are corrupt and do evil things; not one of them does anything good. The Lord looks down from heaven on humans to see if anyone is wise, to see if anyone seeks God…

It is foolishly mistaken to say, “God is on our side and will take care of all our problems.” Instead, God is on the side of those who wisely hold their tongues and seek God within. Those who talk the talk without walking the walk are debilitating and handicapping themselves and the church. They stuff themselves at church pot luck suppers but do not dine on the bread of life. They pay scant attention to the poor who have God’s close attention. When the church comes to its senses, discerns insistence in the name of God (perhaps), pays attention to the real teachings of Yeshua, and acts in conformity with the Commonwealth of Peace and Justice, then the whole creation will take notice – the mountains will rejoice, the trees will clap their hands.
