1 Corinthians 1:27-31
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 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. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
Nehemiah, a servant, was chosen to rebuild Jerusalem. David, the youngest of 8 brothers and shepherd, anointed King of Israel. Jesus chooses a few fisherman and a tax collector to run together as His disciples, performing miracles, signs and wonders in His name. Even Jesus Himself took a road that looked foolish to most everyone around Him, yet where would we be if He didn’t? The foolish heart ruthlessly trusts, and this is one reason why we must all be fools for Christ. (1 Corinthians 4:10) Christ is the wisdom that shames the mighty.
