Current Theme: Study

  • key to wisdom and productive effort, but also "puffs up"     ???

  • What is the motivation?  Does this stem from an initial aim, or is it the aim itself

  • Have you prepared the heart, and found that study is essential, or are you studying to study?

  • Study is a tool and you need to be doing the work that requires that tool for it to be valuable.  I.e. Building character, love, getting closer to God

  • Also, how to meditate on work while we do it.


Thoughts from initial chat (1 Mar)

  • This is a natural consequence or outflow of having a vision

  • Self-reinforcing loops common - "to him that hath shall more be given"

  • 1 Tim 4:8

    • working for work's sake​

    • journey > destination

    • prayer and exercise both have value IN the activity 

  • 1 Tim 4:15  Practice these things (Meditate, KJV) meaning REVOLVE UPON​

  • Love with all your heart as the goal, aim, mission.  Rest of commands are exercises to this end

  • Rejoicing and Mourning as action, self-reinforcing activities.  Compare/Contrast with meditating on emotions (western). 


"How to Study" study course

Progression of examples:

Tips, General Setup, etc. (sheet for printing/Bible insert)

Workbooks, if needed

Worksheet (firestarter) study

General Template for study

If we create a course that takes someone through the structure of a study and then applies it to a few examples to work through, then they should be able to take away from that a general framework and approach to apply to any study of their own.
