Psalm 53 - What Fools Say

The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."

The psalm continues on describing the lives of these fools.
They are corrupt.
Their ways are vile.
They don't understand.
They don't seek God.
They have turned away.
No one has done good.

There is a bit of hope at the end of this psalm.
5 Terror will grip them, terror like they have never known before. God will scatter the bones of your enemies. You will put them to shame, for God has rejected them.

There are people today who are just like the fools described in this psalm. It only takes a few minutes of watching the evening news to know that. 

It may seem a bit harsh that God has rejected them and will scatter their bones. But remember - God also says that those who seek Him will surely find Him. Jeremiah 29:13 NIV God offers salvation to all. Those that are rejected by God are rejected because they rejected Him.

Bottom line:
Knowing the final destination for fools should make us try harder to share the Gospel with friends and family who have rejected God. 
The best way to share the Gospel is to live in a way that doesn't contradict the Gospel but instead shows others the new life that we have in Christ.
