God’s eye view
Our perspective is limited. Our thoughts and actions are often colored by biases, fears, and limited experiences. We tend to focus only on what is in front of us, unable to perceive the bigger picture.
However, by acknowledging our limitations and opening our minds to new ideas, we can begin to see things from a wider perspective. It’s like stepping back from a painting to see the full masterpiece.
Perhaps a “God’s eye view” evokes a sense of vastness and expansiveness akin to standing on a mountaintop, where we can take in the beauty and complexity of the world around us. From this higher perspective, we can see the interconnectedness of all things and the deeper meaning and purpose behind the events of our lives.
How can we reach the top of a metaphorical mountaintop? We have to keep faith that our friends and loved ones will lift us up.
Mark 8:27-33. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.
