Strong and Wise

1 Corinthians 1:25 – “For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.”

The other day, my 11 year old son was giggling and laughing while telling me about something one of the boys in his class had typed on the computer: Chicks like boys with big muscles. Sounds about right, doesn’t it? I just had so smile. They are just now trying to figure out what they think girls like in a boy. So cute.

It’s true, isn’t it? We look to what we can see on the outside to determine worth. We see someone who is doing really well in school or at their job and think – “Wow, this person is really smart.” Or we see someone succeeding in a sport and think- “Wow, that person is really strong.”

But how often do we look at people in the light of God’s Word? I know I fail in this area big time! Just think, the smartest person you know really isn’t that smart compared to God. The strongest person you know is weak as a kitten compared to God. Just think about that for a moment. Let that truth sink in. Wild, isn’t it?

Do you really stop and ponder that we serve the GOD of the universe? The One who got it all spinning! He isn’t some mealy mouth entity that may or may not be there when you want to praise him or ask him something. This is the All Powerful, Always present, Always Listening God we are talking about here.

So today, princess, take a few minutes and quietly look out your window. See the creation He has made. Look in your heart and be humbled that this same Creator sent His One and Only Son to die for you so that you may be closer to Him. If you had been the only person on earth that would benefit from this sacrifice – the only one ever in all of time- He still would have done it. He is that strong and that wise.
