Today I want to correct the misapplication of Wisdom literature - Proverbs in particular - that fails to understand the difference between that and other genres in the Bible.
Today I want to challenge the church to stop putting up with bad behavior from fellow Christians and start actually loving each other enough to confront what we see going on - because it is our responsibility to do so.

After a long hiatus we think about how Jesus is the Wisdom from God. We look at several passages in brief (in case you want to look them up): Proverbs 1:1-9; 1 Corinthians 1:30-2:16; Luke 10:20-21.
Also this gif makes me laugh.
Today we reflect on the post resurrection experiences of Jesus followers.

Today we celebrate Good Friday.
Happy Maundy Thursday! Today we reflect upon the “Last Supper” it’s relationship to Passover, and the command to love the church.
Though a quiet day for Holy Week, it was busy for the authorities and Judas Iscariot who plan together to kill Jesus. We reflect on this and the story of the anointing of Jesus.
Tuesday of Holy Week Jesus engages in “Temple Debates” and gives us the “Olivet Discourse.” I spend a little extra time talking about the parable of the 10 Virgins found in Matthew 25:1-13.
After a hiatus I am back at it. Follow along this week as we reflect on the events of Holy Week. Today we consider the meaning of the cursed fig tree from Mark 11.
Today we explore the apostles Matthew and Simon, and what had to die in order for them to follow Jesus. Also I manage a blatant D & D reference.
