But truth be told when re-engineering a process it is best to start with a blank sheet of paper. Prof’s advice works at the office as well.
So for the past several days I have been working on an overview of Mark. Tonight I finished going through the book paragraph by paragraph. The next step is to divide it into sections with titles and then come up with a tentative title for the book. Lastly picking the key verse and writing out an application, which I already have identified.
It may sound like work. It is. But it is the work that does what Paul says we need to do in Romans 12:2. It transforms me, it renews my mind.
Truth is, I have seen connections already this time through that I overlooked six years ago. No matter how many times I come to a book, it is always new. That is why I need fresh eyes.
