Not Many Wise, Mighty and Noble Are Called

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called“ 1 Corinthians 1:26. 

Accepting one’s sinfulness is a challenge. Acknowledging that you need a Savior and help requires humility. Not every worldly wise, mighty and noble person can admit that he is spiritually weak, poor and even blind. Therefore, you might find very few people in the Church who are “stars” by worldly standards. Of course, anyone can convert and get saved, but it is much harder for those who have a huge baggage that is full of human values and none of the godly ones. Let’s admit our spiritual poverty and strengthen our calling.
