- magnifying glass
- an ordinary piece of glass
In order to get quickly to the heart of a problem with a solution, you have to have concentrated effort. Magnifying your calling means giving real concentration and the result is magnified power, or, look what unusual powers glass can have when it is concentrated in that one spot . That is what can happen when a group works together to solve a problem. If they are all working together. If its not a concentrated effort, then there is no power. Our ability to focus our teaching power depends on the tools we use.
(This could be part of a leadership training exercise on using the scriptures more frequently during our lessons -- reading directly from the scriptures magnifies the material taught)
