“God’s emphasis in the Bible is opposite from ours: a few loaves and fishes, a pinch of salt or leaven, tiny mustard seeds, Gideon sending soldiers home, Jehoshaphat opening his city gates to the enemy, Jesus telling Peter to put away his sword. “My Strength”, he said, “is perfected in weakness.” God wants us to admit that we are a minority – and act like one – so he will be the source of our power. Instead, we think weakness is a scandal. We seek to force our way like a majority. We appear to be compensating for God’s limitations…… How can he bless that?”
