Vision is the ability to see people, places and things, not just the way they are, but the way they could be. (Sam Adeyemi, pastor)
We might think of a pessimist as a person who sees things as less than they really are, an optimist as one who sees things as he wishes they were, and a realist who sees things as they really are. In that same vein, then, perhaps a visionary is the one, as Adeyemi suggests, who sees things as they could be. Which of these are you? Which would you really like to be?
Where there is no vision, the people perish (Proverbs 29:18).
