How often do we catch ourselves thinking, "that makes no sense at all?"
It could refer to things happening around us, in politics or sport, or even in our spiritual lives. The Bible contains a number of stories that make us scratch our heads a little - and honestly, we may even question God's sanity in some of His decisions.
Remember God's brave call to Moses? Why choose a guy as your spokesperson when he can't even speak properly? Or how about choosing a bunch of riff-raff as your disciples? That makes no sense at all? But we know that God delights in confounding our wisdom and reminding us that he is Lord.
"This is not for us to figure out!" - Thomas a Kempis
"27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are." - 1 Corinthians 1:27-28
Living in grace
