What an extraordinary verse !! We might think we are smart and clever however the Bible states that the weaker we think God is , its still stronger than the strongest of our strength. The foolish we think God is, its still wiser than the wisest we think we are.
Beloved, God is not whom we think He is. He is unlike any one we have met. He made us. How often we might with our Maker and Creator !! He indeed is wiser and in His Infinite Wisdom, He sent His Son to be the Substitute for our sins.
God revealed His Son in "apparent" weakness on the Cross however that " weakness" was a decoy or a trap and stumbling block , if you will to keep people who think they are wiser from ever seeing the True Messiah. The Broken sinner realizes the Truth about Christ
1 Cor 1:20: Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 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. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
