This word brings to mind the ability to grow through experiences in life, the good and the bad. I know, for me, gaining perspective has come at a great price. It has only been through going through dark valleys that I have been able to learn of the possibility of the mountaintops. Being able to keep perspective, correct perspective, is something that comes when we fix our eyes on Jesus, no matter what we may be facing.
It's interesting that no two people are alike in how we view life; two people standing in the same place will have two completely different perspectives on things. I used to feel threatened when I wouldn't be the same as the next person, when I would have to stand alone in my convictions or when I felt like I was wrong somehow in standing out and being unique.
