However, to point out that there is no difference between the wise and the less learned in the realm of faith. Some of you are parents, others masters – experts in your field. Already you sometimes it happened that a child advised you or a person you assumed to be from
the area knows nothing? Sometimes a person is surprised and says, “As far as he knows, he is still small, or, in the case of an apprentice, without experience, without knowledge.
In the Gospel, Jesus danced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I magnify you, Father, Lord heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes ”(Luke.
10.21). Jesus thanks him for what has just happened to his disciples, who have returned from a missionary journey. These simple, uneducated people whom the spiritual leaders of the nation despised as flesh.
These disciples become God’s co-workers; these are given by the Father to the Son to bring Jesus through them; he carried out his great mission. Among Jesus’ contemporaries were many educated men, scribes, and the Law, which they felt were experts in God’s sciences. They looked mostly at the religious uneducated people. However, God shows that his work of saving humanity in Christ is not even based on human power or human wisdom. Salvation in Christ is a manifestation of God’s power and wisdom. Through the most inconspicuous people, God carries out his purposes to know his own independence, its power, and holiness. God chooses simple and without people for His gospel special education, but not because the gospel was indifferent to reason or against reason. It is deeper than the mind of man; it is above reason, just as love is above reason,
devotion, dedication, loyalty, and many other facts.
The gospel transcends reason even more than these facts. He demands the whole man’s openness for the mystery of life, for the mystery of life in God. There is no word in Jesus nor traces of contempt for reason and education, or whether they lead. He points out that God does not care whether we are geniuses or just ordinary people; God only cares if we are an open heart for the gospel, whether we are willing to subject the acts of reason to the act of faith. Because common sense can lead us only to a certain limit of God’s knowledge, but by faith, we can also include what is incomprehensible to reason. Let us be small and humble in our hearts so that we do not learn only the real facts, which disappear from our memory, but the facts. Which, in connection with our faith, will bring us eternal life.
