Even Christians can proclaim their love of Christ and still live their lives as fools.
One of the most challenging obstacles many Christians face is setting aside their pride and completely living their lives for Christ.
It’s one thing to know the teachings of the Lord, but it’s a complete other to put them into practice to bring glory to Him and His Kingdom.
Many Christians can talk the talk, but a lot have difficulty walking the walk when it comes to being like Christ.
All of us have that huge hurdle of placing our love for Christ above our pride and desires. The real test of someone’s growth with Christ can be seen in the wisdom of their actions.
Whenever someone proclaims to be a follower of Christ, we can see how close they are to the Lord by their acceptance of His commands and instruction.
Those who say they are believers yet frequently find themselves saying and doing foolish things are either liars or fools holding onto their pride and ego above serving the Lord.
When we fully embrace Christ and live our lives for Him, the wisdom of the Lord within us becomes apparent, giving us a wise heart.
Proverbs 10:8 The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin. (NIV)
