Flying with Thomas has taught me a lot.
It’s taught me that there are 2 perspectives: from the ground + from the sky.
When we choose the ground perspective, often times that means we can only see what’s on our level and it’s easy to only have an understanding of what is riiiiight in front of us.
When we choose the sky perspective, we can see everything in the area, we have a scope for size and how big of a deal things actually are and how they’re all relative to one another.
I try and choose the “sky perceptive” when I can think about it, not be so bundled up on what’s “on my level” and not dwell on the things right in front of me, but have an understanding of the bigger picture, knowing it’s bigger than me and how everything is intertwined along the way.
“Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.”
(Colossians 3:2 MSG)
Choose the sky, my friends. ✈️
