Foolishness

1 Corinthians 1:25

For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom;and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength

According to Dictionary.com, the definition of foolishness is “resulting from or showing a lack of sense; ill-considered; unwise”.  That definiton really describes the human condition, doesn’t it? We humans do many foolish things in the course of one’s lifetime. That is because we are flawed. But God is here to tell us that it doesn’t matter – He loves us anyway.

The passage above is so true – God is wiser than any man could ever be and is stronger than human strength. How powerful these words are! It is almost incomprehensible to a mere mortal man.  God is not foolish but even if He were, His “foolishness” still makes Him wiser than any human being could be. Think about that for a moment.

God is not weak, but if He were, He would still be stronger than all the humans He has created combined. So, what does that tell us? Go to God. Take advantage of His wisdom and strength.  Allow yourself to be led by God. Admit that you are weak and He will make you stronger than you could ever imagine. Let God know that you are foolish at times and He will bring you the wisdom that only God can provide.

God does not condemn us because we are weak and foolish – He encourages us to come to Him. He knows we are flawed but is always there to help us to become more like Him. It’s amazing  how much stronger and wiser you will feel when you just allow God to work in your life.
