Turning Life Into a Formula

I’m reading a very interesting book a friend loaned to me in a recent visit with him. As with much of what we see and hear, there is a growing awareness of enjoying the meat along with spitting out the bones.
This is very much in my thoughts in continuing to read this book, that rather than simply being encouraged by the Father, so often the writer or speaker inevitably turns it into a formula or a principal for whatever point they have made from the scriptures, to be followed out in our lives.

Is it remotely possible that various events that naturally took place within the scriptures, within the lives of real people were in fact things uniquely prompted in them by the Father of their spirit, and had nothing to do with some smart ass coming along and turning it into some principle/precept thang?
