My wife Nanci helps write and edit lessons for our church’s women’s Bible study. It’s amazing how much time these ladies invest in preparing these lessons, including many hours of direct study of God’s Word. It’s been very enriching for Nanci, and fun to see her at the dining room table day after day with open Bible and reference books.
This morning Nanci mentioned that one of her friends, Carol Klingbile, included a poem as an introduction to a lesson she wrote. I first heard this poem, written in 1921, when I was a young Christian nearly forty years ago, but it’s been off my radar screen for decades.
