5 Minute Friday...Perspective...from God's view...


 Today's word is Perspective....



Oh to have the ability to see things from God's perspective...

That person who cut in front of me line...maybe they are rushing because they have a sick child at home...
That person who was rude to me on the phone when I called their business....maybe they just got laid off...
That person who stands alone in the corner at church...maybe they are suffering and just need someone to reach out to them...
That person who always has a smile on their face...did I know it was an act and they are suffering from extreme loneliness...
We all see but a snippet of someone's life and we all tend to judge a person based on what we see. But we all wear masks, we all have a deeper story. Thankfully God does see everything about a person. Maybe just maybe He allows us to cross paths with that person in order to reach out to them.

Have you ever had someone's name come to mind and you wondered why? Maybe God is prompting you to act. Even if this person seems to have life together or seems unapproachable...why not reach out and see what happens?

All of life is perspective and how we look at things. I know I want to see the world through God-colored lenses. Can you imagine just how different people would look to us if we did?
