Pastor, author, and bible teacher, Dr. Tim Keller joins the team to talk about his devotional: God's Wisdom for Navigating Life: A Year of Daily Devotions in the Book of Proverbs. If you’ve had trouble understanding the book of Proverbs, this conversation will take you from black and white to color!
So first Tim unpackages, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7). And we find out that this fear that leads to wisdom comes from knowing how deeply flawed we are and yet how greatly loved we are! Next, we talk about how Proverbs points us to the gospel. Then we see that the Proverbs will only unveil their truths as we slow down and meditate on them.
Next we see that when life blindsides us, the Proverbs teach us to act, not react. Then we see how Proverbs fits into the one story of the bible. Next, the seeming contradictions of the Proverbs actually reveal their meanings. Then, the Proverbs are not a set of simple steps to a happy life.
Next, Proverbs shows us the extraordinary role of a mom in teaching children the way of wisdom. Then, Tim gives his take on the possibility of a spiritual awakening in America, especially among Millennials. And finally, Perry shares how important Tim’s book The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness has been in taking him deeper into the gospel.
