God vs Man

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

I Corinthians 1:25

This verse is something that we need to be reminded of from time to time.  Sometimes we start thinking that we are pretty wise.  We start thinking that, through our lives, we have obtained some experience and have seen just about everything.  We have a tendency to start to think that we are pretty strong.  We get to the point where we think we can handle whatever comes at us.

Then we find a verse like this one: “Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”

When we think that we are getting to be wise and intelligent, we can remember that God is the author of wisdom.  God wrote the Book of wisdom.  All of the wisdom of men through all of history has been given to them by God.

When we think that we are pretty strong and capable, we can remember that God created the entire universe.  We might be able to move our furniture around our living rooms, but God set the stars in place.

It is impossible to understand just how far above us God truly is.  Whenever we start thinking of ourselves more highly than we ought to think, we need to remember our place and God’s place.  This verse is a good reminder of both of those places.
