God exalts thow who act with faith. This principle goes back to the Old Testament and even Genesis when Abraham acted on faith to God’s call.
And those who God exalts are rarely the powerful and important. In God’s story, the common people take the center stage. It’s not a king’s eloquent decree that makes Jesus stop, but rather a blind beggar who desperately calls out His name. Jesus did not ignore the common people or portray them as buffoons.
God prefers to focus on ordinary people and how they become quiet heroes through loving acts of fatih; God invites us to do the same. 1 Corinthians 1:28, “God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are.”
