Calvinists teach that before the world began, God chose a particular number of individuals to effectually save. They teach that this choice is 'unconditional,' meaning it is not based upon anything except God's own secret, self-glorifying purposes. Yet, some passages seem to suggest that God did have a condition for His choice. i.e. God has chosen the weak... God chooses to give grace to the humble. The Father is seeking [true worshipers] to worship Him. Many are called but few are chosen (those chosen in that parable were properly clothed), etc. What say you?
