Fishing for Perspective

2017-09-09T02:56:00+00:00

Charles Francis Adams, son of President John Quincy Adams and grandson of President John Adams, kept a diary. One day he entered: “Went fishing with my son today — a day wasted.”

His son, Brook Adams, also kept a diary, which is still in existence. On that same day, Brook Adams made this entry: “Went fishing with my father — the most wonderful day of my life!” The father thought he was wasting time while fishing with his son, but his son saw it as an investment of time.

The bottom line in these two very different opinions was a matter or perspective. A person’s viewpoint on anything comes from established priorities and the particular worldview he or she subscribes to.

These same principles apply to our relationship with God and His Church. Your attitude toward God is an OBSERVABLE reality. What you do says more than the words you voice.
