Ordinary and Extraordinary

“It has been often said, very truly, that religion is the thing that makes the ordinary man feel extraordinary; it is an equally important truth that religion is the thing that makes the extraordinary man feel ordinary.”

~ G.K. Chesterton

  1. Did Chesterton just talk like that? Most of my favorite quotes are his. A while ago I read his book “Orthodoxy” and even though it was written over a 100 years ago, it read like today. He was amazing.

  2. 1Co 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
    1Co 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
    1Co 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
