The Big picture-2

Ruth 1:8 “And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother’s house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.”
Ruth 1:14 “And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her.”
Ruth 1:15 “And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law.”
…from yesterday…Jesus placed a “bigger picture” before them and they saw it. I said “bigger picture” because, Peter was not a small time fisher man. He had ships and by all standards he was a success in his trade but yet he left everything and followed Jesus because he saw a bigger picture.
Have you ever asked yourself why you’re where you’re? Could it be a picture issue? Most people see only within the confines of the room where they are, they see no further than that.
I remember something that happened sometimes ago, my brother bought a set of puzzle for my boys. The puzzle had about 500 pieces and I remember watching them arrange it within some few minutes. They were competing among themselves for who will finish arranging it within the shortest time frame. I didn’t enter the competition with them because I know they’ll beat me hands down…laughing
But once when they were not around I decided to try my luck and time myself. I tried but couldn’t arrange it in hours! I couldn’t just put the pieces together. I finally agreed that those boys knew something I didn’t know, so I waited patiently for them to come back. I then asked them how they were able to arrange it so quickly.
I was amazed at their answer. They said,”We have seen the Big picture and memorised it!” I got the logic immediately!
This is what the big picture does for us. It helps us to gain speed in the race of life and also to endure the hardship along our path…To be continued
