God is Topsy-Turvy

"The proud are abased and the humble exalted; the rich are impoverished and the poor enriched; the well fed are sent away empty and the hungry filled with good things; powerful rulers are toppled from their thrones, while the powerless and the oppressed are caused to reign like princes. "Who is like the LORD our God?" His thoughts and ways are not ours. He is a topsy-turvy God. He turns the standards and values of the world upside down."
- John Stott
