Light Bulbs

Tonight was the fourth week for the current Dads Teach the Bible workshop.  Throughout the workshop we work on observation, the question, “What does it say?”  The men go through several exercises to help increase their ability to observe.
It is good when people get what you are trying to share with them...  Thoughts at DTTB.
One of the joys is seeing the lights come on as they begin to see the results of spending extended time just looking at what the text is saying.  Tonight was no different.  We looked at how literary structure aids observation.

The men saw things in the passage on which we were practicing that they had not seen before.  They expressed grateful amazement at how what we were practicing helped them to see more in the text than they would have otherwise.

Learning to use this is not easy.  It is awkward at first.  But it pays incredible dividends.
