April fools cross is foolishness bible verses

1 Corinthians 1:18-31

“For the message of the cross is FOOLISHNESS to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God …  in the wisdom of God, since the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the FOOLISHNESS of the message preached to save those who BELIEVE.  For Jews request a sign and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews it is a stumbling block and to the Greeks it is FOOLISHNESS … but because the FOOLISHNESS of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men … God has chosen the FOOLISH things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; that no flesh should glory in His presence.  But you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God– and righteousness and sanctification and REDEMPTION—sthat, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”  (see Jeremiah 9:23-24)

The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for others.
Whoever walks the road, although a FOOL, shall not go astray …
But the REDEEMED shall walk there,
And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”
