The Lord Takes Pleasure In Giving Us Things, Then Having Us Transform Them For Our Own Use

This is from personal revelation, not scripture. (Although now that I think of it, the process is called "bearing fruit," which is quite scriptural.)

I was thinking about the best way to package MIDI music so it could be most efficiently transported electronically. It then occured to me that I should make it as easy as possible for other musicians to modify the music, according to their own abilities and desires. Then I thought, "Yes. That's very nice. Let them start with what I give them, then make it their own, their own way."

Then came the revelation: That is exactly how God does things for us. He gives us the "semi-finished" materials, then we take them and finish them our own ways. In music, this is clearly the case: He gives us a hint of the melody and chords, then we finish it into a presentable work.

If you think about it, the entire Bible can be seen as a huge supply of beautiful semi-finished materials. We then select the parts we need and transform them in our own ways for our own use. For instance, we might take the parable of the Good Samaritan, and apply it to our own life in our own way.

Also, the entire world can be viewed as huge supply of semi-finished materials which He wants us to finish and use in our own ways.

And He takes great pleasure in this process, *very* great pleasure.

May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy Word.
