Closing the debate

I compiled some instructions for the assembly of a ‘proofing box’ (a warm place for raising bread dough). They were simple, a few boards to be nailed together. But often, when instructions are given, they’re received differently than intended, and results vary from plan. I was careful. I noted to myself, if my diagrams were misunderstood, the boards might be fitted alternatively. There was only one real possibility for this and, considering it, I realized the ‘mistaken’ results would, perhaps, turn out more usefully. This gave me a glimpse of an idea.

A perfect plan, perfectly followed, fulfills its promise. Misconstruing it achieves something even better.

This seems to me what God did, when God created our illusion of free will.
