“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” Anais Nin
Simple, yet profound. No matter who we are, or where we live, this statement speaks truth. Sadly, we tell ourselves that we see things as they are, even from a biblical perspective. However, we fail to recognize that most of what we see in life is biased by who we are, how we were raised, the environment, culture, and hundreds of other areas, rather than reality.
Interestingly enough, how we see things becomes our reality. And because this is true, we become entrenched in our vision and beliefs to the point of dogma.
No one is exempt, but we need to understand the importance of patience and love when attempting to help others grow.
Leadership requires us to strive for empathy, the ability to understand and enter another person’s feelings. The more we do so, the greater our influence for the cause of Christ. Think Souls!
