No Resume Required

How you ever thought about how your qualifications don’t measure up to God’s standards?  Have you ever wondered why God would choose you to do anything for him?  It’s a mystery why God does the things that he does but there seems to a commonality in how he chooses people.  He’s not looking for a resume full of past accomplishments.  He’s looking for a willing heart that desires to see his will be done.

David was the youngest of all his brothers and was born from an adulterous relationship but that didn’t stop God from anointing him king over Israel and making him an ancestor of Jesus.

Moses was a murderer hiding from justice but a curious event caught his attention and forever sealed his heart to the Lord’s.  And a murderer became one of the greatest leaders the earth has ever seen.

Ruth wasn’t even a Jew but she had a heart to serve her mother in law and to serve the God of her dead husband’s people.  And a gentile became the great grandmother of King David.

God doesn’t choose us based on what we have already accomplished but rather because he knows what we can accomplish.  He doesn’t select us because of our qualifications; he does it because of our heart.
