Understanding

Understanding

Standing on the bridge, the student told the teacher, “I want to understand the river.”  The teacher replied, “Do you really want to understand the river?”  Thinking for a moment and sure of the answer, the student, “Yes.”  The teacher said, “There is only one way to understand the river.”   And with that, the teacher pushed the student off the bridge and into the river.

Likewise, there is only one way to understand your mission field.
