The wise of this world

“After watching your TV program for such a long time, yesterday I decided to put an end to my curiosity. I was at the meeting and found out that I am one of the wise of this world.

I am an administrator and ran a company in Switzerland, but due to various problems, I returned to Brazil separated, unemployed and living back at my parent’s house. This was such a humiliation and setback in my life.

Every word you spoke was like a “slap” of truth. And while the woman was giving her testimony, my soul writhed, because clearly, she has fewer studies than me, yet she has everything I had and lost.

What caught my attention the most was the happiness in her eyes, something I never truly had, not even when I lived in Switzerland and was doing well. I did not go to the Altar because I did not want to be recognized, but I’m already participating in the Israel Challenge. I left there with peace, which is something I hadn’t felt for years. I thought they would steal my money, but they stole my despair, and I want to thank you for that.”

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty. 1 Corinthians 1.25-27
