A Fresh Start

“Take a good look, friends, 
at who you were when you got called into this life. 
I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, 
not many influential, not many from high-society families. 
Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women
that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, 
chose these “nobodies” to expose 
the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? 
That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by 
with blowing your own horn before God. 
Everything that we have
—right thinking and right living, 
a clean slate and a fresh start—
comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. 
That’s why we have the saying, 
“If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.”
1 Corinthians 1:26-31 MSG
