Timelines


Something old, Something new, Something learned…

Day 1 of Camp Logos I is complete… I am definitely learning some new tricks and relearning some old ones I forgot… It should really help me with knowing how to teach others… Picked up some good resources too, including the Lesson Builder I hear so many talk about… Not everything was a good price, but there were a few good deals…

Sorry it took this long to finish this timeline, but i got distracted with some other projects… I will be writing documentation for the logos class each month, and need to to get it out of the way so there will be time to have it reviewed… Nothing has been posted yet, but the link is at http://groups.google.com/group/logos-connections-springfield-va-usa when we do start posting… The first doc will be on creating and using collections and will likely be posted after the next class Aug. 10th… (If you live in the Northern VA area, please join us for either (day or evening) of our monthly meetings…)

Anyway, the main character in this timeline is King Joash of Judah, a man who allowed flattery to ruin his relationship with God, even driving him to murder… The lesson here is there comes a day when every man must grow up and be a leader… Its too easy to seek a mentor unworthy when we lose the one we have had all our life… There comes a day when our personal relationship with God becomes one on one. We grow up. Its not that we no longer need accountability, but that we should be that much closer to God… And then, one day further, when God judges us worthy, we might mentor others with the expectation that they too would one day grow up…

God Bless,

John


Jehoram Son of Jehoshaphat Timeline

Here we have one of the Jehorams… It always amazes me how Godly men will have such ungodly children… Of course, Jehoram was married to Ahab’s daughter by the time Jehoshaphat learned his lesson… Even making him co-regent did not stop his son from sinning and leading Judah astray once he died…

The lessons I learned from this?

o You MUST teach your children morality when they are young… Waiting until they are are adults or even teenagers is far too long to wait… Make the time for them…

o Even if you are forgiven for your sins, and blessed by God, others may very well suffer for them…

This requires the 3.x version of Logos Libronix and the Timelines add-in…
