The Chief Men of this Eon Are Being Discarded

Yet wisdom are we speaking among the mature, yet a wisdom not of this eon, neither of the chief men of this eon, who are being discarded (I Corinthians 2:6).

The fashion of this world is passing away (I Corinthians 7:31), and along with it, all of the world’s wealth, wisdom and nobility. In fact, the chief men of this eon are specifically being discarded by God.

In discarding prominent ones, God has chosen instead from among the weak, ignoble and contemptible those whom He will use to display His wisdom and glory. God’s point in it all is the complete removal of human boasting (I Corinthians 1:26-29).

As we look at those around us who have the appearance of greatness, respectability and honor, remember that they are in the process of being discarded. Meanwhile, those of us who are called among the feeble, despicable and detestable are being masterfully prepared to be the future rulers of the universe.

Keep your nose to the grind and your eye on the prize. It will be well worth it all when God has completed His discarding.
