God’s Grace with Gary 6/21/22

Hello, this is pastor gary from first baptist church of laplata. Today is the first day of summer. The Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh is doing something different to celebrate the first day of summer: they are hosting Snowball Day. People from the city made snowballs last winter and saved them in their freezers. Today, those snowballs will be launched from the Science Center into the Allegheny River via arms, catapults, and slingshots. It is a fun idea, but it seems strange to me to celebrate summer with snow. The Bible agrees. Proverbs 21:1 states, “As snow in summer and as rain in harvest, so honor is not seemly for a fool.” Honoring a fool is itself foolish—as foolish as a snowstorm in the summertime. What is a fool anyway? According to Psalm 14:1, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God…” One who does foolish things can be corrected, but one who does not believe in God can only be condemned. Hell will be full of fools. Those who are eternally condemned to hell would love to have some snow to cool things off, but snow is not in the eternal forecast—just heat. Speaking of fools, I heard about a preacher who got to the pulpit and saw a one word note that said, “Fool.” The preacher replied, “I have heard of people writing a note and forgetting to sign it, but I have never heard of someone signing a note and forgetting to write it!” Don’t be a fool: believe and be saved!
