Taking a Closer Look

1546378_650975994960443_1423830687_nHave you ever used a magnifying glass to examine the details of something more closely?

This past Monday, my grandson spent the day with us because his school had lost power. Being an enthusiastic explorer, the teacher in me began to surface. We made a Mystery Box game filled with several unique items from my old teaching days.

After discovering a shark jaw and a crocodile head, we decided to compare their teeth. The magnifying glass was a huge help as we could really examine the features of each predator’s mouth.
While watching him analyze the teeth, it made me think about my life. Wouldn’t it be great if we could take a magnifying glass and look at the details in our lives? Maybe with further examination, we could see our faults clearly. Maybe we would fix our flaws, take back mistakes we have made, and repair what we have cracked in our hearts and souls. What a wonderful thing… and yet: we know, as Christians, God has given us the free will to change and move in the right direction. We can’t change our past, but we can work on the future.

After taking a closer look, I know there are many areas that can be improved. Magnify one detail at a time, fix it, and move on to the next.
