    For God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God's weakness is stronger than human strength.

    God's wisdom is immeasurable. God is magnificent in wisdom, and His wisdom is superior to men's wisdom.

    We have redemption, forgiveness, and grace through the wisdom of God. Wisdom is pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

    The cross of Christ is emptied of its' power if told only through human wisdom! How can anyone using only human wisdom understand how a lowly carpenter's son from a small little village died on the cross to save mankind from sin? If you look at it through the eyes of the world, those who need to view salvation logically, the whole idea is "foolishness" to those with worldly wisdom.

    The power of God is shown through Christ in a manner that confounds those who would depend on their own wisdom to understand. God wants us to depend totally on Him through faith in the knowledge that He only is Wisdom and that He only is Strength. This takes a humble heart and mind.

    "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.

    Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling-block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength.

    Father, we would pray for those whom we love who are unable to understand your wisdom and strength, and who are unable to understand the plan of salvation because they look to their own wisdom and strenth of mind. We ask that barriers be broken down so that they may have humble hearts and minds, so that they may humble themselves before you and through that act receive the blessing of salvation. I am particulary thinking of my husband, Day, as I am in prayer right now. You know the hearts of those who share this prayer with me, and you know the names of other loved ones that are included in this prayer.

    In Christ's name I pray this, AMEN!
