It has seemed like forever since I’ve had time to go “shooting”, but I took the time to go this past week. I drove around the lake near us, which gave me a nice view of our lake AND our mountains. I live pretty close to the foothills of that mountain over there, and although I can always see a part of the mountain, I typically see it from a different perspective. Actually, I live so close that a smaller hill blocks my view of the larger mountain. My perspective limits what I can see of the entire mountain range.
This is similar to getting to know people and seeing them for who they really are inside – not just their outward appearance according to our perspective. I recently read the article, “Seeing Things Differently” by Professor Michael J. Dorff. He gives some very good examples of seeing people differently, and closes his article with:
“Our Savior Jesus Christ sees us differently—not as we currently are but as we may become. I am awed by the love He has for me, who does not deserve it, and for the love He has for all of us—no matter who we are, no matter how different we may be from those around us, and no matter what struggles we have in our lives.”
I hope you might read the linked article too (if you’re interested).
Enjoy your Sunday and have a great week! Do or learn something NEW!
