A Bigger Perspective

1 Corinthians 1:25
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
Suppose for a moment that you are standing before a huge painting, blind-folded. Then your nose is placed up against the painting and the blind-fold is removed. Your perspective of the painting would be very limited. You would only have knowledge of the image directly in front of you. You would need to step back in order to get a complete perspective. That is how it is with us sometimes. We can only see such a small amount of what is going on in the world, even in our own lives. We need to ask God to help us See the big picture. Ask God today to help us see things from His perspective. We may be standing to close and need to step back or too far away and need to get closer.
"One never knows what each day is going to bring. The important thing is to be open and ready for it."
Henry Moore
