Brothers and sisters, look at what you were when God called you. Not many of you were wise in the way the world judges wisdom. Not many of you had great influence. Not many of you came from important families.
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and he chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
Because of God you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God. In Christ we are put right with God, and have been made holy, and have been set free from sin.
I Cor. 1: 26,27,30 NCV
