A fool knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. (Oscar Wilde, 19th century Irish playwright)

What April Fools joke might you experience today? It may be an extreme prank, but it’s all in fun, of course. Wilde, however, comments on what is a serious mistake that many people make today. Looking for discounts and “deals,” we often fail to consider the real value of what we’re buying or spending our time pursuing. Stop! Be wise in spending your money and time.

But don’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you (John 6:27).
