I Corinthians 1:27 ” But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”

God could easily use the powerful and super-intelligent to move His Kingdom forward…but He doesn’t.  He could utilize those who are  idolized and obsessed over…but He chooses not to.  God would rather select those who the world would view as ridiculous to direct the course of redemptive history.  Verses 28-29 go on to say, “He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things – and the things that are not – to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him.”    God uses everyday, common, ordinary people to do extraordinary work for Him on a regular basis.  He takes the nonsensical and creates the incredible.  All He needs is a willing heart and spirit.
