The Way We See Makes All the Difference


Perspective makes all the difference.

All of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death. 
I was therefore buried with Him through baptism into death,
 in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead
through the glory of the Father,
so I too may walk in newness of life (Romans 6:3-4).
How great is the love the Father has lavished on me,
that I should be called a child of God—and I am! 
Therefore the world does not know me,
because it did not know Him (1 John 3:1).

In his essay, “Meditation in a Toolshed,” C.S. Lewis depicted the difference between looking at a beam of light and looking along the beam.  As he entered a dark toolshed, he could see nothing but a sunbeam that came from a crack at the top of the door.  At first, he looked at the shaft of light with thousands of specks of dust floating in it, but then he did something most of us have done at one time or another. He moved until the beam fell on his eyes, and at that moment, the toolshed and the sunbeam vanished.  Looking along the beam, he saw green leaves moving on the branches of a tree outside, and beyond that, the sun itself. Perspective makes all the difference.
