perspective

When we look at things from different angles. . .

we have different perspectives.

If we all have different perspectives ...

we'll all have different opinions on what we see.

I am only responsible for my perspective. . .

and thus. .my opinions.

Align CenterI sure do wish I would remember

to look up when faced with differing perspectives.

I've noticed that it gives me a perspective clear of clutter and suddenly my opinions seem far less important.

Looking only at Jesus . ..

my vision clears.

  1. Thank you for this great reminder... too often, I am guilty of not remembering that we each have different ways of seeing things and that focusing on Jesus does bring everything into the proper perspective.

  4. Great thoughts Lovella. It's always good to be reminded to stay centered with Jesus. I'll drive anywhere to meet up with the MG's anytime I'm in Washington! :0)

  6. There are certainly many perspectives and angles, as we have all discovered, I think, while blogging. Thank you for your words of wisdom and reminder that the paramount perspective is looking to Jesus first and foremost.

  9. perspective and opinions versus the truth which only comes from Jesus......looking towards that more and more in my life and less of my opinions

  10. Amen. I sometimes just sit and meditate on the words that I know Jesus said. I like the comparison of perspective represented in your pictures. Blessings in Jesus name.

  11. I like that Lovella. It reminds me of what I've been chatting about all week, only I've phrased it a bit differently, " What you Think of me is none of my Business."
    Now I know that is a mouth full, but in reality it sounds similiar.
    We'll discuss it in detail sometime???
