Miners of God’s Wisdom

June 4, 2018

A graduation address for the 8th Grade Graduates of Emmanuel Lutheran School, based on Proverbs 3:1-12 (with reference to Job 28). What is the "treasure mine" that Job describes, and how does it relate to Proverbs 3? How do we gain those treasures? Why are some treasure mines abandoned? Why should we never abandon the treasure mine of God's Word? What is the attitude that benefits from wisdom and learning? How does discipline fit into loving relationships? 

Congratulations to all our grads, and blessings on High School!


The Wisdom of God

November 20, 2017

Sermon on Proverbs 8:11-22, for the 23rd Sunday after Trinity, about how Christ is the Wisdom of God, how Wisdom is personified in Proverbs 8, and how the pursuit of earthly, practical wisdom relates to the higher pursuit of Christ as the Wisdom of God. How is Wisdom woven into creation? What did God delight in Wisdom and in His creation?
