This morning's first reading at Mass came from 1 Corinthians 1, in which Paul states that "the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength." This profound statement can confound many. Because it is true, the self-centered world is having trouble understanding and obeying God. But to the truly wise, they see the way to approaching and knowing God. Since God's wisdom and strength are so much superior than ours, there is no better choice than submitting ourselves to him, follow him, and obey him ~ the smart way to go.
