The Lord's Perspective


Are you a glass half full or half empty kind of person? 

The problem with a view point is that even when two people are looking at the same thing, they see it differently.

Both perspectives are neither right or wrong.

The same goes if a person perceives the glass as neither full or empty.  

However, if you are analyzing a person to find out what makes that person tick, you do not base your readings on your own perspective, but that person's.

Just as if you are trying to figure out the Teachings of Jesus Christ, you do not lend to your own understanding: 

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  Never rely on what you think you know."                         Proverbs 3:5

The problem: not everyone is attuned to the Holy Spirit or even remember the Lord when making decisions.

Some people have a tendency to read whatever into a situation and do whatever without regard to the truth, consequences or consideration for the Lord or for people.

Inaccurate readings or misinformation does nothing to help with understanding (of a person or subject matter).  

Bad readings can lead to horrible assumptions and terrible consequences; like the misinformation that the Covid-19 coronavirus is like the common cold, no need to take it seriously.  

The result of bad readings, bad assumptions and bad practices have terrible consequences in tragic outcomes and catastrophic fails.

This is similar to sinners assuming salvation in the Lord when never doing anything with the Lord (or have the Lord's blessing).

You know, if you want salvation, you have to understand salvation from the Lord's Perspective and follow the Lord's Directive, not your own.
