An online devotional for writers
Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things. (Mark 6:34, NLT)
“Jesus loved data.” That statement by writer Abby Perry gave me pause.
But it’s true. Data is more than numbers and statistics. It’s also facts and information, which Jesus gathered regularly.
Look at just a few ways He collected different kinds of information and what He did with it.
The data you collect allows you to understand what’s going on and make a plan for the next step in your writing.
Jesus used different methods to gather all kinds of data. Then he used it. So can we.
Gather a variety of data in a variety of ways to use as you write.
Information is plentiful. You’ve given me many ways to collect it. Help me to do my part to be alert and thorough to get complete data to use as I write.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
