Seeing through God's Glasses

Prov.25:27 "Just as it is not good to eat too much honey, it is not good for people to think about all the honors they deserve."

Attitude is always in the perspective. Over the years I have found that it is our vision that creates perceptions. The glasses we view life through makes all the difference.
Eve spent time focusing on what she couldn't have. Joseph's brothers focus and comparison drove their jealousy to thoughts of murder. Saul focus so much anxious attention on David that his leadership slid contimually. How do you explain Judas? He saw Jesus walk on water, heal the sick, and raise the dead. But he always seemed to focus on money and greed blinded him to the Savior.
The Pharisees tore their robes and threw stones at Stephen because they saw a need to defend their life rather than their need to hear the word of God.
When self becomes god, nothing can fill the void. The world's smallest package is a man wrapped up in himself.

When you put on God's glasses, all of life changes.It is an eternal view, it is a humble view, it is a grateful view, and it is a beautiful view. Right in the center is a new vision of the cross.
