Foolish One

April 9

Daily Bible Reading: Luke 12:1 – 34

Verse of the Day: Luke 12:20 – “But God said unto him, Thou foolish one, this night is thy soul required of thee; and the things which thou hast prepared, whose shall they be?

Αφρων. The Greek word translated “foolish one” carries with it the meaning of one without reason senseless, foolish, stupid, without reflection or intelligence, one who is acting rashly. Pretty heavy condemnation coming from Jesus.

In this parable of the rich fool, Jesus is reminding us that each person has a God-shaped vacuum in their heart that is searching for something to fill it. This vacuum can’t provide peace until God invades it and fills it.

In your life, do you struggle with contentment? Are you constantly looking for something to provide peace and security? Only God can do this, let Him invade you and fill you to the brim.

Prayer: Gracious Father, invade my being, my presence with Your Being, Your Presence. Let it overflow and provide contentment.
