1 Corinthians 1:28,29
"He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things--and the things that are not--to nullify the things that are, so that no one could boast before Him." NIV
"And the base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and the things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence." KJV

It was God's plan to have His Son enter humanity in a lowly and humble way. The lesson to learn here is that royalty and riches in the Kingdom of God have nothing to do with material things.

Heavenly Father, we confess that we are a people who think of material things, not just necessities, but things for comfort, pleasure, and status. Forgive us for being selfish and worldly. Search our hearts and place a hunger for the things of God rather than the things of this world. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
