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!
