Corrective lenses

Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. Col. 2:2-3

Perspective is that pesky lens that messes with our initial reactions to a particular person or event. Neither our emotions nor our intellects can be entirely trusted to see the whole picture. Adding yet another lens and trying to see things from an eternal perspective and considering spiritual ramifications is likely to create even more tension with either heart or head, and maybe both.

Lord, correct my vision, I think my perspective might be off.
