A WINDOW TO THE WORLD


There are two ways of looking when it comes to a window.  I can look at a window.  I can notice the glass, see if there are any streaks or dust particles or bubbles in it.  Or I can look through a window.  I can view the world beyond it by using it as an opening to the world.

Sometimes I look at the Scriptures.  I study its story.  I ask questions.  Thoughts of God’s goodness, love, and peace lodge in my mind.  The idea is that I begin also to look at my world through the Scriptures -- through the perspective of God’s constant care and presence.

-- John Ortberg in The Me I Want To Be
