Teacher: John Schoenheit
Far too often people endure hardship and difficulty because of the foolish choices they make. Despite God clearly telling us that “Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom” (Prov. 4:7), there is not nearly as much talk about, or pursuit of wisdom in Christianity as there ought to be. For example, when was the last time you heard one Christian complement another by saying, “You are so wise.” In this teaching on “Living Wisely,” John Schoenheit explains that in many Christian circles the focus on wisdom has been supplanted by a focus on “faith,” with the underlying assumption being that if we can get what we want by “faith,” then wisdom is not needed. John demonstrates how both faith and wisdom are important and that we need to understand both of them and how they work together. Living wisely is not an easy thing to do so we must take the time to think through our decisions, and have the discipline to carry out what we know to do.
