The passage I read was 1 Corinthians 1:18-31
You can find that passage here:

My summary of the passage is this: If you don’t know the Lord personally, you won’t fully understand His writings. But if you know Him, then his writings can have power when applied. God showed us the wise from the unwise and the intelligent from the unintelligent. God used things that the world didn’t value to bring value into the world. Take the men and women that wrote the Bible for example. Most of them were not great before God chose them and used them to do great things. In this way we can recognize that it was indeed God’s work through man and not man’s earning his own glory. Glory be to God.
As I reflect:A favorite saying is brought to my memory. “God does not call the qualified. He qualified the called.” This passage explains that well. Also, verse 20 stands out to me a bit more than the others. It states that “God made the world’s wisdom foolish”. You gotta love that. That’s my God. He in His perfection and great wisdom has made the weak strong, the wise foolish, and the fool saved. His weakness is stronger than our strongest and His foolishness is wiser than our wisest. Now, I don’t in anyway believe that this passage is saying that God is either foolish or unwise in any way. I just believe that portion to be trying to get the point across that there is no comparison to how great His wisdom is.
