The Powerless

Re:Verse passage – Luke 8:1-15 (day six)

God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 1 Corinthians 1:27

I imagine the disciples were discouraged. Those they expected to follow Jesus had rejected him, and those they least expected were now following him, like sinful women (Luke 7:37) and government officials. Likely, this was not how they thought the coming Kingdom would go.

Jesus was not surprised; he knew what the Father was doing. That’s what he was telling his disciples.

The proud, wise, and powerful of the world were being snatched up, distracted, and consumed by the cares of the world. It would be the least of these that would sink roots deep and bear fruit.
