God in his divine wisdom use simple, ordinary things and people to do his work and fulfill his plans. God may place us in the lives of people for a season and reason. He may call us from unknown places to do his work. There were many known women in Bethlehem, Judah, but God chose a simple unknown woman name Mary to be the mother of Jesus. There were many known and popular men in Israel, but Jesus chose twelve unknown men to represent him in the world. He gave them a simple message of his death, burial and resurrection to preach. God has a purpose for being simple.
1 Corinthians 1:27-29
27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things-and the things that are not-to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him.
