The beginning of wisdom

Is the fear of the Lord,

With a reverence and respect

For His holy sacred word.

But the fool says in his heart

’There is no God’ indeed,

Where he sustains unrighteous works

With corrupt motives and deeds.

Although there is none righteous

When we believe and fear God,

His mercy will grant us repentance

So we’ve covered in His abode.

The foolish continue in their folly

And have no regard for others,

But walk in self-righteous ways

And by deception they are covered.

Because when mammon is their god

They cannot serve two masters,

And will reject God Almighty

When it’s money and status they are after.

The foolish believe that those of faith

Are the actual fools indeed;

Where intelligence is fully absent…

But God’s wrath is all they’ll see.

When the foolish walk in confidence

They are steeped in hypocrisy,

Because there is no true purpose

If there’s no faith in eternity.

What would be the point

Of this vapour in the wind,

If our lives are only earth bound

Where there is no hope and faith within?

The Lord is angry with the wicked

Every single day,

And His wrath extends for eternity

For those whose sins remain.

The fool will reject God…

Although the clay cannot dictate,

To the Potter in any shape or form

Since the Potter holds its fate.

The fool in his folly

Is doing his soul injustice indeed,

Preferring to please people rather than God

But where judgement he will see.

The fact we’re created so brilliantly

Is a testament that God is real,

And that there is hope for the fool

When from his folly he is healed.

Eternity is forever

And God’s justice will prevail,

Repent and trust in Jesus;

In the One who wore the nails.

Because it was no trivial matter

For God to sacrifice His Son,

But His love for us exceeded all

And gave His only Anointed One.
