“Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have!”Matthew 6:22-23 MSG
Perspective is powerful.
Perspective impacts everything:
Your thought life.
How you see others.
How you see yourself.
Jesus talked a lot about seeing your life from God’s perspective.
When you live your life from heaven’s perspective and look to Jesus for help to do it, you can be filled with hope, vision, and fulfillment.
When you live your life from earth’s viewpoint and look to those around you to help, you can be filled with depression, disappointment, and dissatisfaction.
Jesus is the light of the world and it is his desire to fill your spirit, soul, and body with the uncontainable light of his love.
That is why he came to earth as a babe. This is why we celebrate Christmas – to not just remember it but to experience it every day. To experience life with him every day.
What perspective are you viewing your life from?
How do you need Jesus today?
How can I pray for you?
