"You have hidden these things from the wise and intellectual ones and have revealed them to babes." (Matthew 11:25)

Even if you did not excel at school, you should not imagine that "the deep things of God" are beyond your grasp. (1 Corinthians 2:19) During Jesus' earthly ministry, Jehovah revealed an understanding of His purpose, not to wise and intellectual ones, but to unlettered and ordinary men who were humble enough to be taught by God's servant. They seemed like babes in comparison with those educated in the schools. (Acts 4:13) Today, too, Jehovah uses his spirit to direct his organization, which provides God's unified people with an understanding of the Bible. (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 4:3-6) Worldwide, all congregations enjoy a similar program of Bible study. Over a period of years, they cover the entire range of Bible teachings. Holy spirit acts through the congregation to help people adopt the attitude needed to understand "the deep things of God." -Acts 5:32
