So, in my Bible reading plan for this year I am in the section of Exodus which describes the building of the Temple.
It is WAY detailed. Here is a sample:
"You shall make an altar on which to burn incense; you shall make it of acacia wood. A cubit shall be its length, and a cubit its breadth. It shall be square, and two cubits shall be its height. Its horns shall be of one piece with it."
It goes on like this chapter after chapter.
I'm not gonna lie. It's pretty tedious reading. Interesting from a historic perspective but not particularly inspiring.
Except that it made me think of this:
God cares about the details.
The small things in life.
The conversation where I need a little extra wisdom.
The little shading I can put on the truth.
That extra five minutes to call someone who is hurting and encourage them.
Those extra few minutes I spend praying for someone.
That thirty seconds I take to say hi to a neighbor instead of letting the garage door go down quickly.
I don't always seize the opportunities, but every detail moment is a chance for me to be a little more obedient and experience a little more of God.
