The Foolishness of God


“…the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” [1 Corinthians 1:25]

The omnipotent God who created all things has chosen the foolishness of preaching to confound the wisdom of men!  Rather than display His power, He has chosen to display His grace.  Rather than display His infinite knowledge and challenge us to know Him by discovering all His hidden understanding, He has openly revealed Himself in the life of Jesus Christ.  Rather than give us some huge task requiring strength and skill, He has saved us by grace through faith.  Man’s way of approaching his gods has changed over the centuries and religions come and go.  Yet the preaching of the Cross still changes lives after all these years.  Today’s thought is that God’s “foolishness” is after all so much wiser than our “wisdom” and His “weakness” is so much more powerful than our “strength”.  To God be the glory!

  1. How absolute and true! Yet, isn’t it also beautiful that after encountering the Cross a man’s understanding of His Beauty unfolds with astounding clarity as each day passes?

    Propelled to a life worth living. Enticed by the Majesty of the Lord. Gently urged to “understand”. And taught to respect Him beyond our greatest understanding. In all things He is More!

    By His Grace.
