God chose what the world considers low-class and low-life — what is considered to be nothing — to reduce what is considered to be something to nothing. - 1 Corinthians 1:28 (CEB)
In popular literature, plays, and poetry, the common people often have unimportant roles while the exalted parts go to kings, princes, and princesses.
But the New Testament flips that perception. In God’s story, the common people take center stage. It is not a king’s eloquent decree that makes Jesus stop,...
God exalts those who act with faith.
Those who feel unimportant

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
