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.
1 Corinthians 1:27

Have others ever made fun of you because you weren’t as good as them at something? If so, welcome to the company of great achievers! Most great achievers in life started out against the odds and were considered by the “experts” to have little hope for success.

When Albert Einstein’s father asked his school teacher what profession his son should adopt he was surprised at the answer. The teacher said, “It doesn’t matter. He’ll never amount to anything.” But that didn’t stop Albert Einstein from pursuing his dream, because he had a passion on the inside that was bigger than the critics around him. Albert Einstein had the last laugh.

The world looks at the outside of a person to see if they have what it takes. God does the opposite. He looks at what’s on the inside.

The world may be laughing at you and telling you that you don’t have what it takes. Don’t be moved by their opinion, because it doesn’t really matter. Partner with God and allow him to bring to the outside what is on the inside. Do this, and you too will have the last laugh.

Commitment Prayer:

Lord, I choose not to be moved by the critics around me. Instead, I am moved by Your Word and what You say I can do. Give me the strength to stand and the power to press on. I believe that through You I will have the last laugh. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
