Position is a funny thing. Where you stand has so much impact on your perspective. #DeepThoughtOfTheDay
Just coming back from my four-week-vacation-marathon, I’ve found my old world, my home, feels foreign.
I was sitting on the couch, checking up on my social media when I had the sudden realization that I must be behind schedule because of my laziness. I felt my pulse quicken and I resisted the urge to leap up and act immediately.
What am I supposed to be doing right now?
Nothing. Really, I had nothing to do. But because I had just spent a month reviewing my every action with a schedule, I felt like I was doing something wrong. In that position, I felt melancholy. I missed my friends who I had worked with, and I missed incessant activity. Last month, I was loving life.
In the same way, going to church was a surreal experience. I felt like I had no time for hearing about ministry, I wanted to do it. Again, after two weeks studying and practicing ministry, I say “It’s time to go!”. I have a new perspective.
Now here’s the crux, if you have a new perspective; do you strive to regain your first viewpoint, or do you embrace the new one?
When a man gets a new coat, he rejects the old and puts on his new one. He would be crazy to refuse a new coat and cling to his old one. Moreover, no natural man would not show everyone he knew his great new coat.
If you have a new perspective; pursue it! Tell everyone you know that you are new.
