Easter on April Fools’ Day
Matthew 7:24-29; 28:6
When Easter is on April Fools' Day, It reminds me of a story Jesus told About the wise and the foolish man Who built houses, one a strong-hold. The wise man Built his house on the Rock. Then when the elements hit, It stayed in place with all the knocks. The foolish man Built his house with no Foundation. Then when bad weather came, It crashed after severe gyrations. When the angel says, "He has Risen." Which kind are you? Wise - believing and receiving. Foolish - rejecting and leaving. When Easter is on April Fools' Day It reminds me of a story Jesus told About the wise and the foolish man Who built houses, one a strong-hold. --- Charles B. Mayes
