Looking at something from a different perspective can make all the difference.
Often, we tend to see or believe something from a certain point of view and find it difficult to look at it any other way. We begin to close our mind to other possibilities. We become firm in our beliefs.
Sometimes, what we believe is less than the reality of the situation. Sometimes, what we believe is wrong. The ability to see the situation from a different perspective and to have an open mind to other options is wise. A step in one direction or the other can make all the difference.
Maybe, it is time for a different perspective.

The scriptures are full of advice, commands, warnings, consolation and hope. There are countless stories to rival any best seller. Then again, the Bible is a best seller. I wonder if the Bible is a best seller because it’s the “best bought” or the “best read?”
A reader, I am sure, would be awe-struck to have met a Hemingway or a Frost in their day. Imagine telling these authors in a “stumbling word pattern” how much they have read and enjoyed their writings. I wonder if the same “awestruck scenario” would take place if they were to meet the Author of the Bible. Could they tell Him how much they have read His writings?
There are those who would risk their lives to possess even one page of scripture. Think how thrilled they would be to own as many Bibles, in as many versions as they would like. Could you imagine risking your life for one page of scripture?
Something to think about. Coffee does taste good this morning!
