RHYMER OF GOD SERIES: food for the soul repackaged (#11)

FOOLS

Fools hate knowledge and scorn God’s wisdom.
They would do none of His instructions.

He calls and stretches out His hand.
Counsel and reproof, He offers them.

They  refuse and despise His calling.
Each would rather do his own thing.

The simple minded turns away.
The rich fools are happy in their own ways.

But God will laugh when fear comes upon them;
He will not answer when they beseech Him.

In anguish, distress, and desolation:
God mocks them, in their destruction and doom.

msg: pr. 1.24-33

* don’t be a fool
