Go on and admit it. You thought I would post something about April Fool’s Day yesterday, and there was nothing. Maybe it was planned and maybe it wasn’t. Perhaps it seemed trickier to do the post today.
The majority who read the post today remember growing up playing those little pranks on friends, family, or teachers and followed it up by saying, “April Fool’s.”
Generally, these pranks were harmless attempts to get people to look at or believe something that did not exist.
Growing up these childish games faded and April 1st became another day like other days. So, what is the point?
When we examine the nature of our leadership, is it more like an April Fool’s prank? Do we pretend to be something we are not? Do we really understand the seriousness of our influence and its affect on others? An honest evaluation helps us determine who is fooling who.
We can fool some of the people some of the time. We might fool most of the people most of the time. We may even fool ourselves, but we cannot fool God. Lead with God in view.
