The bigger picture is what's most important about any given event or reality.
In the 1980 Winter Olympic games, team USA scored a 4th goal in the game which was currently tied 3 to 3. The smaller picture was a hockey player scored a goal. The bigger picture was we sent the Russians home from Lake Placid with shame, crying like the losers they were. On top of that we won the gold medal as underdogs.
