The Wisdom You Thought You Knew (July 24 – August 28)
Our world gives us a maximum of choices but a minimum of meaning. We know the price of things but not the value of things. We have endless freedoms without the wisdom to know how to choose. Young or old, we desperately need wisdom because we all want to choose wisely, live meaningfully with deep satisfaction and the minimum of regrets. There is a whole category of wisdom teaching in the Bible towards this end – a life lived most fully and meaningfully.
This series will explore the tradition of wisdom known as the wisdom books of the Bible. We will learn the nature of wisdom and how to cultivate it. We will learn how to suffer wisely and how to avoid unnecessary suffering. We will learn to navigate the agonies and ecstasies of love. Wisdom shows us how to interpret the patterns of life and how to respond to them. Wisdom also teaches us to spot when the rules don’t apply and how to respond skillfully. Wisdom integrates the best of knowledge, doctrine, theology, philosophy, psychology, biography and experience into application towards every conceivable situation that life can throw at us.
