fun and foolish feeling?

For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.

1 Peter 2:15

This is one of my beautiful ponies. Isn’t he adorable? I thought I would use him as an object lesson here about focusing on what is real rather than just fun and games. I used Biblegateway.com and looked up the word “foolish” and what I found was quite interesting. But the really interesting thing is that the Lord keeps bringing me back to the same scripture above. Actually the whole reads likes this.

15For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. 16Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.   2 Peter 2:15-16

So, in other words the church (body of Christ)  needs to start living like they belong to Jesus, it will change things.

Welcome to  Word-Filled Wednesday!

The purpose of Word filled Wednesday is to share God’s word (no famous quotes or other literature — only the beautiful word of our Father) through photo’s & a Bible verse!

I am happy to be hosting “Word Filled Wednesday” for Amy at the 160 acre woods
