He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his faithful, for the people of Israel who are close to him. Praise the LORD! (Psalms 148:14
The colonists could say the name "fools' gold" had special meaning for them. For not only had they been deceived by the worthless look-alike mineral, but they had foolishly abandoned everything they needed for life in a quest that would have made no sense even if their discovery had indeed been real gold.
Is that not a parable of the way many of us spend our lives? Stocking up fool's gold. Ignoring the really important matters in life like building a closer relationship with God.
Loving God, thank you for your patience, as I learn to work on the things that really matter. In Jesus' name, Amen.
