Few Are Chosen

Two days ago I was hit by my reading in Matthew.

“For many are called, but few are chosen.”  –Matthew 22:14

Of course I don’t want to try to understand what this means.  I don’t really care for what the Bible actually says only what I think it should say based upon man’s superior intellect.  Man is of course so much more intelligent than God you see.

You know what I did after that verse hit me?  I prayed for the salvation of my children.  This verse and others are meant to humble us.  And it had just that effect on me.

I watched two interesting videos on Romans 9:9-13.  Jacob I loved.  Esau I hated.  We can reject this outright too.  It clearly doesn’t fit with what man believes about God.

Or I could believe what the Bible says…
