Fool

Description

Sometimes God goes to extraordinary means to get our attention when we are set on going our own self-destructive ways. Take time to listen.

"In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight". - Proverbs 3:6

You make a fool of yourself when you argue with a donkey. In Numbers 22, the Bible tells of a man named Balaam who was headed in the wrong direction. He wanted to please himself and was ignoring God, so God spoke to him through his donkey. Balaam was furiously mad at the animal! He argued with it and almost beat it to death until he realized that God was seeking to speak to him and to help him get on the right path.

Sometimes God goes to extraordinary means to get our attention when we are set on going our own self-destructive ways. It could come through a financial jolt or through a rebellious child. When those times come, getting angry may be foolish, but taking time to listen may be the key to seeking God’s guidance about the right way to go.

Is God trying to get your attention to keep you from making a fool of yourself? Take time to listen, and He’ll change your course and get you where you need to go.
