Day 104

Today’s Reading – I Samuel Chapters 21-24

So he pretended to be insane in their presence; and while he was in their hands he acted like a madman, making marks on the doors of the gate and letting saliva run down his beard.  I Samuel 21: 13 NIV

Seems like a scene out of a B Movie.

ntczyTrapped in a spot that is certain doom – just act insane and get away.

Wasn’t that the plot of a “Get Smart” episode? or was that Inspector Closeau?

David is confident in his mission from God that he willingly becomes the fool to get out of a jam.

I have often thought of trying that, but never had the guts to pull it off.

Perhaps this was a test run for David.

Remember this is the guy that danced like a fool for God.

David was described as a man after God’s own heart and yet he is often found to be doing the most foolish of things.

When is the last time you did something foolish for God?

Perhaps we need to toss aside our inhibitions and willing become the fool for God?

After all the things of God are most often deemed foolish by the world – maybe today is the day to become a fool for God – if even for a moment.

Tomorrow’s Reading – Psalms 7, 27, 31, 34 and 52


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
