When you encounter a situation, what do you see? Do you see the glass half empty or the glass half full? How you perceive a matter may effect the way you respond to it. What is the proper response? I am not going to tell you the answer, because I do not know for you. I only know what I am learning — albeit very slowly.
What we see is not the entirety of a matter. We can only see from our limited perspective. We cannot know another’s heart in the matter; we don’t even know our own most of the time.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Thy word have I hid in my heart; that I might not sin against Thee.
