Wear Hope-Coloured Glasses

It’s easy to become distracted and forget that people matter most. They matter more than our busy lives and more than our goals and our dreams. While we exist for God’s pleasure, we experience purpose by caring and loving others. The question is, how do we keep people as the priority amidst so many distractions?

The key to true perspective is your connection to Jesus.

The relationship you cultivate — the romance that you experience with Jesus — becomes the attitude you face the world with in the morning. When you keep your ‘love tank’ brimming with Jesus, and all the colour He adds to your heart, you will find your perspective of people is renewed. People are no longer an inconvenience, but become walking miracles through God’s eyes of love and hope.

This perspective of hope is different to rose-coloured glasses. Searching for the good in people isn’t being blind to their sin, it is simply viewing their destiny through the lens of what God can do in and through their life. Sharing your faith requires a real interest in people coupled with a perspective of hope.

Genuine hope in a world of empty promises is rare. This makes hope contagious. Your hope in God’s plan for others may well be the thing that helps them find true hope in Himself — Jesus.
