Why a Jigsaw Guide to Life?
Well, it’s not too difficult to look at life like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The biggest puzzle of them all. This world is broken. Life is confusing. We’re surrounded by all these pieces and we’re not sure what to do with them.
I grew up with many people who could look at life like a broken puzzle, and they knew we’d never find all the pieces. They knew we’d never find all the answers. The trouble was many stopped asking the questions.
But if we look at life like a broken jigsaw puzzle there is hope, because when it comes to a jigsaw puzzle you don’t need every single piece of a puzzle in place to see the big picture. You don’t need to know everything to know the truth.
This is where it starts to get exciting. All those ultimate questions that were beyond reach may be within reach.
Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Where are we going?
Questions that many people have dismissed and thought, “There’s no point asking those questions. We’ll never find all the answers!” The jigsaw reminds us, we can start snapping things into place.
It’s great to know that God wants us to know the truth.
He has made pieces of the puzzle visible, within reach, available to us. When we start to look at things that stand out and fit them together, we can start to see the big picture.
A Jigsaw Guide to Life reminds us that we can look at life with hope, knowing you don’t need every piece of a puzzle to see the big picture, you don’t need to know everything to know the truth.
Knowing that life is about being discoverable, what is your purpose?
Not just your purpose, but what is the purpose to life?
