Genius you are

There are loads of online tests are available for you to test your IQ, some will definitely make you more of a genius than others.

The last time I did an IQ test I was the “thicky” in my family, no surprise there. Most importantly I would add that an IQ score means nothing in relation to your usefulness to God, he wants available people not necessarily intelligent ones who try to outthink him, as if that were possible. I remember reading comments from William Carey and John Piper where both claimed to be “plodders” in the Kingdom of God, yet God in his grace and mercy has used both in wonderful ways.

1 Samuel 15:22-23

“Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
as much as in obeying the LORD?
To obey is better than sacrifice,
and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is like the sin of divination,
and arrogance like the evil of idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the LORD,
he has rejected you as king.”
