Everybody knows that the sun is a lot larger and more significant than the royal observatory in Greenwich park, but if you stand in the right place (or the wrong place), at the right time of day, the royal observatory looks a lot larger and more imposing.
A few yards to the right, this evening, and the sun would be entirely eclipsed.
It’s all about where you are standing and what you are looking at.
It’s easy to complain about the taste of the wine when others have nothing to drink. It’s easy to complain about the size of our homes while others have no home at all. It’s us allowing things to become larger, and more imposing, than they actually are in the grand scheme of things.
We all do it.
So today, let's step away for a few moments and ask God for his perspective on the imposing issues in front of us.
And see the impact of him at work.
