Life In Perspective


Life In Perspective

Putting life into a meaningful perspective is a challenge for each of us. It is quite useful to have a way of looking at life that allows each of us to look at the worldy aspects of life and also to look at the spiritual aspects. Such a way of looking at life allows each one of us to see life and sort out the basic problems of life in a more meaningful and comprehensive way.

The diagram on the following web page shows and emphasizes some of the most important and basic aspects of life. It puts these aspects into a Biblical perspective, providing a standpoint from which to make important life decisions.

A very useful exercise for anyone studying the diagram is to go through the Bible and pull out passages that relate to each of the basic spiritual aspects of life. Going through such a process will enable you to gain a deeper understanding of the relevance of the Bible to your life, especially your spiritual life. In this way you will gain a greater appreciation for the lessons of the Bible.

The diagram is free to be printed out by anyone who wishes to make a copy. If you wish, print out or make more copies in order to give the copy or copies to others who might find them useful.

“The noblest contribution which any man can make for the benefit of posterity, is that of a good character.  The richest bequest which any man can leave to the youth of his native land, is that of a shining spotless example.” – Robert C. Winthrop (1809 – 1894)

SO, remember, God reminds us in Romans 8:28-29 that He aims for us to be Christlike.  He will not forsake us, His workmanship, as you get to grow and know God – its remarkable, how He helps mold and make us – through our lives…  We start out fresh, generally go amiss, get messy, and when we repent and we accept Jesus in our heart, and receive the Holy Spirit – He works on us and helps clean us up, over time, not instantly, so be patient…
