Second Reading for the 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

1 Corinthians 1:26-31

Summary: God chose the unwise, weak, and lowly to confound the mighty, ensuring no one boasts before Him. In Christ, we gain wisdom, righteousness, holiness, and redemption, boasting only in the Lord.

God Chooses the Humble

Consider your own calling, brothers and sisters.

Not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.

Rather, God chose the foolish of the world to shame the wise, and God chose the weak of the world to shame the strong, and God chose the lowly and despised of the world, those who count for nothing, to reduce to nothing those who are something, so that no human being might boast before God.

It is due to him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, as well as righteousness, sanctification, and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Whoever boasts, should boast in the Lord.”
