This question looks absurd, isn’t it? If I should carry out statistics on this issue I don’t need to be told that the percentage of people that will claim to be intelligent will be far more than the ones who actually accept to be stupid. I don’t think somebody will accept to be stupid. The truth is that somebody must be stupid.
The irony is that the stupid ones are full of confidence, full of mind blowing ideas, full of faith to get things done but the intelligent ones are full of themselves yet can’t make any impact. Solomon said,
‘I have seen servants on horses, while princes walk on the ground like servants (Ecclesiastics 10:7).
God uses the foolish things which are despised and make them mighty (1 Corinthians 1:21-25).
Jesus never went to pick the intelligent ones to become His disciples. He selected those who were not pronounced and announced them.
Most intelligent people are not the wealthiest but the stupid ones made a fortune because of their stupidity.
The world richest men were not the best of brains, they were people who had confidence in themselves and utilized opportunities.
Most inventions of the world were not from intelligent professors, they were from people who turned stupidity into necessity.
The intelligent people write books on how to grow rich, become great, build empires but the stupid ones take the information and change the world.
The intelligent men were not the people God used in the Bible to perform wonders but people who believed Him and followed him sheepishly, I mean stupidly.
Abraham was an idol worshipper, Moses was a murderer, Joshua was nobody, David was a shepherd, Gideon was the least in his father’s house, Solomon was not qualified to be king, Peter was a fisherman, Paul upon his intelligence as a lawyer still became foolish for Christ to use him, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Elijah were all from a poor background, yet, they became stupid to follow God. God turned them into extraordinary tools and made them great examples for the world to see.
Now do you choose to dwell in your intelligence or do you want to be foolish for Christ to use you? Your guess is as good as mine.
