Do you sometimes feel like you may not be the sharpest tool in the shed? Do people sometimes make remarks that are unkind and unflattering? Well don’t worry about it, because you are in good company. The Bible says; Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13).They even called Jesus a winebibber, and a glutinous man a friend of publicans and sinners. (Luke 7:34b). Actually it is wise to be simple.  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: that no flesh should glory in his presence.” (1 Corinthians 1:26-29).“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.”(Matthew 5:5).“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”(2 Corinthians 11:3). And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”(Matthew 18:2,3).But Jesus said, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”(Matthew 19:14). A little child just trusts his parents to lead him in the good and right way and doesn’t question every little thing that they say and tell him. “My sheep hear my voice and I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27). I always tell new converts to start in the Milk of the word, the Book of John. I love it. It has always been my favorite book in the Bible. It is so easy to understand, and it tells you all about Jesus and what he said and did. “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:” (1 Peter 2:2). Being smart is receiving Jesus as your Savior by asking him into your heart and reading his Word and living for him. The world says get a big “PHD” degree, (Piled Higher and Deeper). And make a lot of money for yourself and live selfishly and build greater barns and acquire more things for yourself. “Men will praise thee when thou doest well to thyself.” (Psalm 49:18b). “But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?” (Luke 12:20 ).Let’s just keep the gospel message simple, and not waste time arguing about doctrines with people who don’t want the truth anyway, let’s just win souls for JESUS and reach the lost sheep. “But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject ;”(Titus 3:9,10)
