For some reason, God likes choosing ordinary people to do His work. Remember Gideon? He was a farmer threshing wheat in a winepress to hide from the Midianites – but God choose him to deliver Israel. How about David – a smelly old shepherd? God choose him to be King. Or Ruth – an unknown widow from Moab. God choose her to be the great great great grandmother of Jesus. Or what about Jesus’ very own disciples like Peter, James, John, Andrew? They were plain old fishermen – but God choose them to lay the foundation for His church.
