The Foolishness of God

Here are the words to the Michael Card song we played before the sermon in church today.  These are great lyrics for an April first Sunday.

God’s Own Fool  (by Michael Card)
It seems I’ve imagined Him all of my life as the wisest of all of mankind,
But if God’s Holy wisdom is foolish to men He must have seemed out of His mind.
 For even His family said He was mad, and the priest said a demon’s to blame,
But God in the form of this angry young man could not have seemed perfectly sane.
Chorus:
When we in our foolishness thought we were wise,
He played the fool and He opened our eyes;
When we in our weakness believed we were strong,
He became helpless to show we were wrong.
 So we follow God’s own Fool, for only the foolish can tell.
Believe the unbelievable! Come be a fool as well!

Come lose your life for a carpenter’s son, for a madman who died for a dream;
Then you’ll have the faith His first followers had, and you’ll feel the weight of the beam.
 So surrender the hunger to say you must know, have the courage to say, “I believe.”
For the power of paradox opens your eyes and blinds those who say they can see.
Chorus:
When we in our foolishness thought we were wise,
He played the fool and He opened our eyes;
When we in our weakness believed we were strong,
He became helpless to show we were wrong.
 So we follow God’s own Fool, for only the foolish can tell.
Believe the unbelievable! Come be a fool as well!
