For the first time since originally published in 1984, the Wisdom Booklet series is being made available for anyone interested in gaining an appreciation for the practical application of God’s Word in our lives! Developed to provide a template for how the Word of God applies to all of life, this series encourages you to build a Biblical worldview by learning to apply Jesus Christ’s own Words of Life to the study of linguistics, history, science, law, and health.
Each Wisdom Booklet explores and expands upon the meaning of verses from Jesus’ famous “Sermon on the Mount” as recorded in Matthew 5–7. By taking a unit study approach, the Wisdom Booklets serve to “scratch the surface” of the depth of the riches of God’s Word, and it is our prayer that each booklet will awake in you a desire to meditate and search more deeply into the Scriptures. Each booklet provides intriguing and thought-provoking examples on how to apply Jesus’ teachings to modern life. Filled with illustrations, concepts and analogies that will stay with you for life, the Wisdom Booklets show a perspective into the heart of God.
We invite you to take a closer look at a free sample of Wisdom Booklet 1 and consider how this valuable resource would be of benefit to you as an individual Bible study resource, a discipleship tool for parents with their children, or as a group study for small groups or Sunday School. Most importantly, we desire for you to see that the Word of God is approachable and brings us into a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
In Wisdom Booklet 8:
This booklet focuses on the character quality of sincerity and what it means to be “pure in heart” as Jesus described in Matthew 5:8. Through the resource studies we discover how a pure heart enables us to “see God” in the pages of Scripture, in the world of nature, in the events of history, and in the circumstances of our lives.
- We will learn how God purified the heart of a blaspheming sea-captain and how this man influenced many others.
- We explore how the process of refining silver and pruning fruit trees relate to the purification of the heart.
- We will read how the Scopes trial contributed to the pluralism of society and its consequential danger to Christianity.
