Perspective I

When things go wrong: Look at the bigger picture. (Source unknown)

Good advice! When we run into difficulties in our pursuit for success, we may be discouraged and think that it will never work out. Everything is doomed! Such a perspective looks too long and hard at the immediate, ignoring the “bigger” picture. How is this single incident related to the overall project? The wider look will help us move on from momentary failure.

You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.” (Mark 8:33)
