Why You Should Always Carry an Umbrella

March 18, 2018

If you ask most people how they’re doing, they’ll answer in the small things:

“It’s been busy at work”

“The kids have been sick”

“Trying to get the house painted to put it on the market.”

We think and evaluate through the day-to-day events of our lives. What we miss, though, is the larger perspective.

It’s like those photo riddles involving extreme close-ups of everyday objects—you need to zoom out to understand what they are.

The Book of Ruth—that tiny, beautiful little book—is an extreme close-up on one Israelite family. But when you zoom out…WOW.

This is why you should always carry an umbrella.
