It Is All About Perspective 



Today, I was asked about an event that was scheduled to happen. The question was regarding the temperature and the chance of snow. You see, we got a bit of a dump overnight and the temperature was going to get down to about –8 C tonight. I am all about safety while travelling and all that and am very appreciative that my advice was sought concerning this. My response was quite quick in this regard because I have been on social media and texting our family in Nova Scotia who, in some cases, are having trouble getting out of their homes because the snow is two thirds the way up their doors. I saw a picture from my niece where the snow was two feet over her head after the sidewalk was cleaned. For the record, I have been there when we got hit with that much of a dump not once, not twice but rather three times in one week. Temperature-wise, they are not in a deep freeze like we were a few weeks ago (-46 without the windchill is very cold). In making my quick decision, the weather events in Nova Scotia helped me to realize that, from a safety standpoint, we were just fine. 


Perspective is a very individual thing. There are some who do not feel there is a Heaven and that is okay, it is their perspective. I can take time to chat them up with His message and pray the seeds take root, but, in the end, it is their choice. There are some who think they can get to Heaven by being a good person but without that heart and soul commitment to Christ, being good will get you a bunch of friends and that could be about it when it comes to eternity in Glory. 


“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17 NLT 


Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!” John 14:6-7 


Now, I know I am coming from a perspective of a follower of Christ and I trust that His promise is solid. My life both here and into Glory is based on my faith in a living God who died for me and for all. Even within the faith family, there are numerous perspectives that can cause some angst between denominations, and they can affect the relationship amongst us all even affecting our own perception of another group but in the end, Jesus Saves.
