For God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.  1 Corinthians 1:27 KJV

I once watched a movie about a disabled boy who could hardly talk.

The boy was autistic, and his dad thought he could not do anything because of this problem. Initially, all the boys at his school made fun of him when he tried to play ball with them. They soon found out he could play much better than they thought.

A boy named Zack was assigned to play with and help the autistic boy. They soon became close friends. Even the boy’s daddy found out he could do things when his son threw an egg in his face. His dad was proud of him and asked him to throw a tomato in his face, which he did.

The boy soon proved himself on the ball team. He eventually brought the baseball team together, and they all became close friends.

Near the end of the movie, the boy fell on the field near the end of a game, and he was taken to the hospital. All the boys gathered around his bedside. God used this boy to show the other boys on the team how to come together and be true friends.

For God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. This verse reminds us that God can use anything and anyone He desires—such as was portrayed in the movie—to confound the wise. If we make ourselves available to Him, he will use us no matter what people may say or think about us.

Make yourself available for God to use, regardless of what you may think of yourself or what others may think of you.
