Wait, Read That Again

November 6, 2019

“You can photograph the same setting a million times and never get the same result twice,” says Jeff Masamori. He’s the Art Director for Huckberry, and is quoted in their Winter 2019 edition.

“There will always be factors beyond your control.

“But for me, shooting and revisiting a scene over and over is the best way to get to know a place.”

Long before Masamori picked up his first camera, someone else said,

“Because of the Lord’s great love

we are not consumed,

for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning.”

(Lamentations 3:22,23)

You and I can return to the same Scripture passage a million times and while it’s the same, we are not.

Our perspectives and our perceptions change.

Our needs and our desires shift.

We are simply different. Each time.

IF I COULD ASSIGN HOMEWORK: what’s your favorite Psalm, or what’s your favorite parable Christ Jesus told, or what’s your favorite piece of advice in Scripture? Read it again today,

Re-read it, very carefully.

See what’s there.

Notice what’s not there that you thought was there.

As was famously said by Mortimer J. Adler, “One cannot read…one can only re-read.”

SO NOW: what favorite part of the Bible will you re-read today, and what’s fresh about it today?

As always, I’d love to hear from you in any of the usual ways, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
