Five Minute Friday

When Exploring Makes You Think Of A Life Lesson

This post is part of the Five Minute Friday blog link-up. Where I join up with a community of writers and bloggers of all ages and stages who gather around a single word prompt to free-write, unscripted, unedited, for five minutes. This week’s word prompt is {EXPLORE}

Kate said explore

This week’s word prompt brought to mind scavenger hunts.

During my elementary school years, I remember our local community center used to host summer activities for the kids in my town. The summer activities program came to a close every summer with a picnic and scavenger hunt.

The adults (usually recruited parents) would split us into groups and go around town with us kids while we explored and searched for the “treasures.” You know, each group wanted to be the one to find all the clues and win a prize.

Now today, my memory of scavenger hunts made me think about when I read my Bible. I’m drawn to dig deep, exploring all of the nooks and crannies to expand and develop my understanding about what God is saying in his word.

Isn’t it funny how a memory from long ago can make you think of a life lesson today? Keep exploring, my friends.
