The Jesus Example

Would you rather have God's game plan for you all laid out from the outset, or revealed on step at a time? Why? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 155).

While the sense of long-term purpose and mission is beneficial and necessary, it is not sufficient.  For the human mind, details are most effectively metered in manageable units.  Balance between pattern perception and analytic thinking achieves optimum productivity.  Analytic aspects must operate directly on the environment--hence the need for constant interplay and feedback.  Motivation derives from both long-term pattern recognition and short-term behavioral reinforcement.  In seeking to encourage and motivate man, God thus relies on immediacy and vision as exemplified in Christ Jesus.
