Have you ever experienced being stuck in a certain way of thinking and finding it difficult to see things from a different perspective? Don’t worry, this is a common experience. Fortunately, it is possible to change your perspective with some effort and practice. However, as a Christian, what does the Bible say about changing your perspective? First, let’s take a look at some of the ways we can change the way we see things.
Seek Out The New
One way to change your perspective is to seek out new information and experiences. This could mean reading books or articles on unfamiliar topics, traveling to new places, or trying new hobbies can be fun, too. Exposing yourself to new ideas and ways of thinking will expand your mind and start seeing things differently.
Change Your Assumptions
Challenging your assumptions is another way to change your perspective. We all have certain beliefs and assumptions that shape our worldview, but sometimes, these can be limiting or incorrect. By questioning your assumptions and considering alternative viewpoints, you’ll start to see things differently and be more open-minded.
See People Differently
Practicing empathy and putting yourself in other people’s shoes is important. When you can see things from someone else’s perspective, you’ll better understand their thoughts and feelings. This can help you be more compassionate and make better decisions in your own life.
Changing your perspective can be challenging, but it’s worth the effort. By opening your mind and considering new viewpoints, you’ll better understand the world around you and be better equipped to navigate life’s challenges.
Read Your Bible
Finally, If you’re looking to change your perspective, the first place to start is the Bible. It’s filled with powerful scriptures that can help shape the way you think and see the world. Take the time to explore its wisdom and you may just find that your outlook on life is transformed.
Here are just a few scriptures to get you started;
2 Corinthians 4:18: “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
“Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.” Colossians 3:2
Proverbs 3:5-6 instructs us to “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
