HFW: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31

We're working through a study this summer to celebrate Ephesians 3:10:

So that the manifold wisdom of God might be made known through the church to rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.

This series will run from June 22-August 30, with four readings per week.

The first reading is 1 Corinthians 1:18-31. After reading this text, answer the following questions, then you can watch the video for a 5:00 thought from the text. (I recommend you work in the text first before watching the video. However, be aware, the video is not intended to be the back of an algebra book--supplying answers to the questions--but rather, is just sharing some thoughts from the text.)

    1. Describe the interaction between man's foolishness and God's wisdom?
    2. What sort of things do people seek in regard to wisdom?
    3. Should we consider ourselves wise?
    4. Why would God choose to use things regarded as foolish?
    5. Where should our pride rest?

i like these video segments, but only the second one has your words and lips matching up....which means i can't watch while you are speaking....which means that if i look at something else or do something while listening, i get a bit distracted. can you work on this detail? :)
