GLUTTON FOR DETAILS

Chuck Swindoll said, “Most folks read through the Bible and casually notice birds, plants, trees, and wind. But not you! Aim higher than that. Think of your eyes as searchlights. Become a glutton for details in everyday life. Don’t glance at birds—see sparrows. Don’t smell flowers, observe the hyacinth, the fuchsia, the tulip. Don’t consider a tree—look at a willow or a birch. Don’t watch cars, notice Fords or Pontiacs and Toyotas. Don’t simply hear others’ words—listen for feelings and picture detailed concepts. Stop collecting the garbage of generalities and start stretching your mental muscles in the gymnasium of in-depth perception.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.”
