Theme Verse: For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. (1 Cor 1:25-27)
Thought: This is a song of praise for the life we have in Christ. It is written in view of our struggle with self-justification and worldly understanding of events. Some of my friends have suffered great tragedies - as have some of yours or maybe you yourself. In my life there is one particular couple who have modeled joy in the face of difficult times. The values of the world and the values of the kingdom of God are often at odds with each other, and the values and wisdom of the world will tell us lies about ourselves and our circumstances. We, however, listen to God's voice in the cacophony and believe his promises and follow his ways, even in opposition to the "wisdom" of this world.
