Open to being fooled.
Happy April Fool's Day! I don't know about you, but April 1st is not my favorite holiday. I'm not a huge practical joker nor do I like being tricked. However, our resistence to being embarrassed can prevent us from experiencing some of life's greates moments. I came across this quote from Alan Jacob's book The Narnian, "Those who will never be fooled can never be delighted, because without self-forgetfulness there can be no delight, and this is a great and grievous loss." It reminds me not to be so self-consumed with being right or knowledgable or wise that I miss out on the sheer delight of being a part of this world God has made.
