#790 – Design And Detail

Good morning people committed to doing things as instructed

It’s easy to have an attitude of close enough is good enough. This can happen at school, at work, in our family and at Church. In fact, many times it is easy to do a good job but not a great job. Sometimes it is easy to get most of it done right while overlooking some small details. Surely it doesn’t matter?

Exodus 25:9 Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.

This was God speaking to Moses for the Israelites. I believe the same principle applies for every person today.

Close enough is not good enough for God.

Believing that Jesus was a good prophet but not the Son of God is close but it’s not right and it’s not good enough. Jesus Christ was fully man and fully God and He is the only way to the Father. This is God’s design and the details matter.

Doing most of what God has said is close but it’s not enough. We are instructed to do all that God has commanded. But as I’ve said many times, this is not to control us but to keep us free from the consequences of wrong decisions.

God has a design and God has many details to that design. We can find them in God’s Word, the Bible. I encourage you to daily read and think about what the Bible says and to ask God to help you live according to all that is written in it and to live life exactly how He has instructed. I believe this is a key to living a fulfilled life.
