condescended to adapt Himself to our weakness, and to show us a pattern of
holy life in the form of our own humanity. Yet, since we when we come to Him
do wisely, He when He came to us was considered by proud men to have done very
foolishly. And since we when we come to Him become strong, He when He came to
us was looked upon as weak. But "the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and
the weakness of God is stronger than men." And thus, though Wisdom was Himself
our home, He made Himself also the way by which we should reach our home.
