The Power of Ordinary

In the Kingdom of God, ordinary people do extraordinary things. Operating within the unlikely is the sphere of the Holy Spirit and revelation.  The Bible expresses this, saying, “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong” (1 Cor. 1:27). God does need qualified people, for He qualifies those He calls. Many of these examples include: Moses, an orphan and fugitive; or David, the youngest, smallest son of Jesse.

Being ordinary is something God values probably because humble people are not self-aggrandizing, boastful or combative. Furthermore, using the ordinary makes a miracle more extraordinary, seemingly impossible without God.

In a culture where acceptance and affirmation are premium, popularity is a much sought after virtue. However, there is Biblical admonition to be careful when all people speak well of you (Luke 6:26). Popularity and effectiveness are not synonymous. In fact, as a parent, you are perhaps most effective when you are the least popular with your children.
