When something happens that "shakes" us to the core we tend to stop and realize what is really important. Putting "things" in perspective is where we seek the true desires of our heart, soul and SPIRIT. It changes how we act and react to the external (things not of the heart, soul and SPIRIT) situations; it is where the occurrences of life do not distort who we are nor, change who we were created to be. Colossians 3:2, "Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth." When we stop and look up, we see the awesomeness of GOD in any situation; we are a new self which is renewed in the image of our CREATOR. Now that's PUTTING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE!
