As the week progressed there was progress. They began to see that they could study and understand what they were studying. Given the right questions to ask, with some simple guidance on what to look for in the text, they were making solid observations on what the author was saying. They were excited that they could do this on their own. They were excited to share what they were seeing in the Word of God.
Yesterday morning we held the next to last meeting of the current Dads Teach the Bible workshop. The men in that workshop have had the identical experience. Different language, different culture, halfway around the world, the same response to the Word of God.
Why do we insist on making this so difficult?
