SC 190: Gabe Cleator on “Meditation” – Pt. 2

When we think about Biblical meditation, it can oftentimes feel overwhelming, and maybe even a little mysterious. But, it’s really much simpler than we often tend to make it: thinking about God’s Word slowly and carefully, and allowing Him to apply it to more then just our head, but also to our heart.

This week on the podcast, we’ve got the second half of a special interview with Gabe Cleator, a conference speaker and good friend of the show, focusing on the topic of Biblical meditation. Join us as we continue the discussion about what mediation is (and is not), and some testimonies of how mediation has impacted Gabe’s life. We’ll cover “hearing God’s voice,” and being humble, and *persistent* in learning from the Bible–and find out what meditation has to do with fast food and football! That’s all on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

SC 185: If You Have Ears, Listen!

The statement “If you have ears to hear, then listen!” may sound a little strange…but it has a purpose. Our ears don’t do us any good if we don’t use them after all…

This week on the podcast, we’re going to look at some examples form God’s Word of the “everyday lessons” we see recorded there: the parables of Jesus. While there’s a lot of different parables and stories that might come to mind, there’s a common thread through all of them; a message calling us to listen to the truths they contain. Join Andrew this week as he digs into some fascinating passages from God’s Word. That’s all this week, on the Sharpening Character Podcast!

This week on the podcast, we’re going to be looking at one of the most well-known passages in God’s Word…but perhaps in a way you’ve never heard it examined before. Join us as we look at the instructions for finding wisdom in the Sermon on the Mount, and the example of someone God used to bring about some incredible discoveries that impact our lives on a daily basis.  That’s all on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!
