Bible: 1 Corinthians 1:26-31

1:26 Think about the circumstances of your call, 1  brothers and sisters. 2  Not many were wise by human standards, 3  not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position. 4  1:27 But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong. 1:28 God chose 5  what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something, 1:29 so that no one can boast in his presence. 1:30 He is the reason you have a relationship with Christ Jesus, 6  who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 1:31 so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” 7
