Do you consider yourself to be detail-oriented? Do you have a keen sense of observation ?
I was recently applying some hand cream, and noticed the friction ridges on my fingertips. Everyone has friction ridges on their hands and feet. These ridges, which begin to form during the sixth week of gestational development, are what cause us to leave fingerprints when we touch surfaces.
My fascination with fingerprints began when my son was training to become a police officer, and was studying crime scene investigation.
Humans have three patterns of fingerprints : loops, whorls and arches. My fingerprints are in the arch pattern, a trait shared by five percent of the population.
Within these three patterns; however, all human fingerprints are unique; not even identical twins share the exact fingerprints.
God is so incredibly detail-oriented, that He chooses to create distinct friction ridges for billions of people. We know that we can trust God with every detail of our lives. We can trust, and not be afraid.
After my fascinating contemplation of friction ridges and fingerprints, I realized that my refrigerator door had fingerprints on it; it was time to begin my homecaring duties.
I am detail-oriented too.
