Not many people are powerful, not many are rich, not many are famous—though many wish they were. No one wants to appear foolish or weak, which is why the allure of worldly ways is so enticing. The world has built a better mousetrap, so it seems, coaxing Christians onto its spring-loaded trap of humanism and intellectual pride. But Paul would have none of it. He warned us to turn our attention to what really matters—the cross of Christ—even if the world thinks it foolish and weak. Because through the cross, God blesses.
