"In God’s wisdom, He determined that the world wouldn’t come to know him through its wisdom .....(1 Corinthians 1:21).
Spiritual Truth Is For Everyone
One doesn't have to be rich, good looking, intelligent, powerful, of any specific nationality, or ethnicity, because the Kingdom of God is equally available to all (Acts 10:34). We come to Jesus not through strength or brains, but through childlike trust. Jesus is not opposed to scholarly pursuits (2 Timothy 2:5), however, He is opposed to spiritual pride (being wise in one's own eyes). One should be careful not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think (Romans 12:3). I thank God for affording us access to Him (John 3:16). Trust in God's grace, not in your personal qualifications, for your citizenship in the Kingdom.
Be Humble Like Children (Mathew 18:3)
"In that very hour He [Jesus] was overjoyed and rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and He said, “I praise You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things [relating to salvation] from the wise and intelligent, and have revealed them to infants [the childlike and untaught]. Yes, Father, for this way was [Your gracious will and choice, and was] well-pleasing in Your sight. All things have been transferred and turned over to Me by My Father and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal Him. Then turning to His disciples, Jesus said privately, “Blessed [joyful, spiritually enlightened, and favored by God] are the eyes which see what you see, for I say to you that many prophets and kings longed to see what you see, and they did not see it; and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it (Luke 10:21-24).
Be Encouraged and Remain Humble ...The Holy Spirit will teach you all things ..(John 14:26).
