Lord Jesus, if I be a fool, may I be only a fool for the sake of your name. As Paul admonished, may I imitate him when reviled, to bless, when persecuted, to endure, when slandered to entreat. Such a tall order, I can do it only through Christ. Be my strength, Lord, be my voice. I ask in your name and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute.” (1 Corinthians 4:10 ESV)
