Details Matter

Re:Verse reading–Luke 24:1-12, 33-49 (day two) 

While they still could not believe it because of their joy and amazement, He said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” vs. 41

I am constantly amazed at how much God cares about details, and how the writers of the Gospels were able to capture the small nuances that helped relate those details to us. Whether it be what the rich man was wearing, the kind of robe they placed upon Jesus and how it was divided, or simply that he was hungry after the resurrection-details matter. They matter because they are the small things that we can get our minds around. We may struggle with the the hows and whys of God’s plan, but we understand small symbols that add up to the tapestry God is weaving. Jesus knew that. That is why he told stories. That is why he used bread and wine. Jesus’ hunger was another sign that this walking miracle was alive. Re-read his stories. Marvel at the small things and how they point to the big ones.

One thought on “Details Matter”

  1. Amazing! I don’t think Jesus needed any foods or drinks or that He was hungry. He gave a further proof that he was risen from the dead in a true and real body. As in a real body, Jesus was capable of eating and drinking just like we are!

    It shows us how smart Jesus was in revealing himself! He was not a spirit but is a living God! Can we trust and believe in Him? We must!
