The history of April Fools’ Day is interesting. It would seem this day allows justification of hoaxes, practical jokes, or pranks.
Now that we are a week into April, why write about April Fools’ Day? I’m not.
The post is about predictability. To write such a post on April 1st is expected and predictable.
The rut is easy, comfortable, and predictable, especially in soul winning.
We never seem to find the time to go across the street to talk to a neighbor about Christ. We are busy with various activities with family and work. Starting a Bible study would fill up another night. When I get home at night I am tired and I just want to sit down and relax.
I can write this because I live it. I have made all the excuses. I have justified every action. However, my neighbor, the grocery clerk, gas station attendant, shoe salesman, and waitress, all still need Christ.
I (we) have to get out of the rut, get uncomfortable and start thinking souls. We are spiritual leaders and our task on earth is to lead others to Christ…. no fooling.
