STOP AND THINK – What you see and hear depends a good deal on where you are standing; it also depends on what sort of person you are. (C. S. Lewis, 20th century Christian apologist)
Lewis’ comments on two perspectives is really helpful. Where you stand in relation to hearing and seeing is important, just as two eye-witnesses see things differently though they view the same scene. Even more important, your personal approach to life will cause you to see things in a way that will likely color your understanding of what you’ve seen or heard.
My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion. (Proverbs 3:21)
