We Just Don’t Believe That

"God chose what is foolish in the world 
to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in 
the world to shame the strong, God chose what 
is low and despised in the world, even things 
that are not, to bring to nothing things that 
are" (I Corinthians 1:27-29).

We just don't believe that.
     Even the foolish, weak, low,
despised nothings in the eyes
     of the world want more than
anything else to be worldly
     wise, strong, high, admired --
somebody, something, even
     if all that striving simply
ends in suffering, death and
     destruction, as it always,
inevitably does.
