Every Friday, I’ll post thought provoking discussion starters.
I was going to post some quotes about April Fool’s Day, but I can’t. I don’t want any of us thinking about or discussing the quotes I found. Just a sad and disgusting perspective on people. Friends are worthy to be fooled. You can’t hurt anyone. You get the picture.
What do you think? Is April Fool’s Day harmless? Harmful? Does your motive matter? For instance, if you played a joke on someone, but you didn’t want them hurt by it, would that make it okay when they were hurt?
If those questions don’t interest you, how about discussing these quotes? There’s much here worth unpacking.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.” (Proverbs 1:7)
“A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son grief to his mother.” (Proverbs 10:1)
“The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.” (Proverbs 12:15)
“A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless.” (Proverbs 14:16)
