Danielle Shroyer joins Daniel Kirk to bring some much needed pastoral insight to the running theme of wisdom. Solomon gets it—for wanting what Adam and Eve grasped after in the Garden. Where do we find the wisdom to get over our aversion to naming God as worthy of praise? Can we find the path of wisdom if we’re vague about what the will of the Lord is? And where on earth do we get the wisdom we need to understand what Jesus is going on about?
1 Kings Does God choose to be limited to the authorized places of worship? Danielle suggests that seeking knowledge of good and evil wasn’t so bad for Adam and Eve, and it’s certainly good for Solomon.
Psalm 111 Together we plumb the psychology of our modern aversion to giving God credit. What are we afraid of and how do we get over it?
Ephesians 5 Wisdom… again! But how do we know what the will of the Lord is? Danielle tries to stick Daniel with answering what it means that the days are evil. And then she gives him the biggest guilt trip ever about watching a Facebook video.
John 6 We plumb the age old question: what on earth is Jesus talking about?!?!
