Brothers think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards;
Not many of you 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. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things and the things that are not to nullify the things that are. So that no one may boast before him. It is because of him you are in Christ Jesus who has become for us the wisdom from God-that is our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore as it is written "let him who boasts boast in the Lord."
