Can you believe it’s April already? I was just looking up the origin of April Fools Day. It seems to be a bit vague but the commonest one is that it started when Pope Gregory XIII introduced the Gregorian calendar in the 1500s and decided the year would start on 1st January. Previously the new year had started on 1st April due to the vernal equinox ….. and people who were reluctant to change were referred to as April Fools! It’s funny how we continue to do things without understanding why!
The Book of Proverbs has a lot to say about wisdom and foolishness.
Here’s a couple to digest and decide which camp you belong to!
‘A fool always loses his temper,
But a wise man holds it back.’
‘Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise;
When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent.’
Prayer: Dear Lord, Thank you that your Word gives me wisdom and understanding. Please help me to make wise choices today and not foolish ones. In Jesus Name, Amen.
