I found this little anecdote recently; it’s an interesting illustration about how different things can sometimes look – if we take a step back and shift our point of view.
A mother saw a thunderstorm forming in mid-afternoon, and worried about her seven-year-old daughter who would be walking the three blocks from school to home in a storm. Deciding to meet her, the mother caught sight of her little girl walking nonchalantly along, stopping to smile whenever lightning flashed in the distance. When the child saw her mother, she ran excitedly to her, exclaiming happily, “All the way home, God’s been taking my picture!”
Fear is often caused by our perspective.
