...God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are…

[1 Corinthians 1:27-28 KJV]

Let me be always a fool. Let me always be weak. Let me always be base. Let me always be despised. For thus, I always am — however wise I seem, however strong I can show myself, however lofty my aspirations, however loved I think of myself. Let me never think I have raised myself in any way toward the glory of God, for if it is that we are ever eye to eye, it is that He has stooped mightily low to let me see…. And if we ever are, let it be that He gives me a wink, to remind me that He’s looking over me, to remind me that knows why, without me having to ask — and that He is my friend.
