In an effort to save you valuable time when marking key word symbols in your Bible while doing Inductive Bible Study, I have been sharing some of the symbols that I use to mark key words. I’m sure that you are fully capable of coming up with your own symbols and colors to use. However, even the most brilliant of us gets stumped every now and then. It’s easy for some of us . . . uhhh, I mean some of you OCD-types to come to a screeching halt right in the middle of your study time just because you can’t think of a symbol to use for a certain word. That’s okay. We’ve all been there. I’m not afraid to admit that I’ve had symbol-block on more than one occasion.
Here’s how I mark the word “praise.” Isn’t it cute? Not that cute is the goal, of course. It just happens to be a happy coincidence. Can you tell it’s a little stick figure (with no legs!) raising it’s little stick hands in praise? You can’t? Well, that was the idea behind this symbol. I use a light blue pen and color the little head with a light blue pencil.
Here’s a suggested marking for angel.
