The Foolishness of Disbelief
Today's reading is a lament about the power of disbelief, which distracts many people from the existence of God. God's hope is always in the faithful, especially those who seek after the ways of God. However, there are many people -- here derided as fools -- who cannot fathom God's existence or God's actions in the world. They would be terrified if they realized what God could do to them, especially those who do evil to other people.
