Qualifying The Called
There is a well-known quote that states, “God does not call the qualifies but He qualifies the called.”
This quotation is based on the passage in 1 Corinthians 1:27-31, which states that God chose the foolish things and the weak things in this world to confound the wise and mighty.
The Lord used the things that are at the bottom, the things that are despised, and those things that are disregarded so that no flesh will glory in His presence.
God alone deserves the glory!
