The Wisdom of Weakness

1Co 1:25-31 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (26) For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.

God will not put us in a position where we do not have to depend on Him. So, there are no churches without problems, no pastors without weak spots, no families without tension. We are all weak in our own way – physical, emotional, spiritual, financial. God doesn’t have any super heroes.
This seems to mean that God allows weakness and problems for His purposes. You and I wouldn’t plan problems in our endeavors. However, sometimes we solve problems and sometimes the problems solve us. God knows that the weakness points both us and the rest of the world to look to Him.
