We don’t have to worry about how wise or clever we are–God chose the foolish. We don’t have to worry about how powerful we are–God chose the weak. We don’t have to worry about how popular we are, or even whether we’ll amount to anything much–God chose the despised and the ones who were nothing. None of those human measurements counts when it comes to performing great acts in life–great acts as defined by God, acts of humility, obedience, and love.
Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways.
