Today’s Reading – I Samuel Chapters 21-24
So he pretended to be insane in their presence; and while he was in their hands he acted like a madman, making marks on the doors of the gate and letting saliva run down his beard. I Samuel 21: 13 NIV
Seems like a scene out of a B Movie.
Trapped in a spot that is certain doom – just act insane and get away.
David is confident in his mission from God that he willingly becomes the fool to get out of a jam.
I have often thought of trying that, but never had the guts to pull it off.
Perhaps this was a test run for David.
Remember this is the guy that danced like a fool for God.
David was described as a man after God’s own heart and yet he is often found to be doing the most foolish of things.
When is the last time you did something foolish for God?
Perhaps we need to toss aside our inhibitions and willing become the fool for God?
After all the things of God are most often deemed foolish by the world – maybe today is the day to become a fool for God – if even for a moment.
