Our perspective is often limited by our understanding.

Let me provide an illustration.

About a dozen years ago, I happened to enter into a discussion with a woman from Romania in the Texas Tech University library. Though I don’t remember what sparked the conversation, I do remember some of what she told me. She was among the students who protested during the late 1980s when Romania revolted against Soviet control. She saw friends gunned down, but escaped with her life. It was a stirring story and from it, I came to understand some things that I hadn’t known before.g

After telling her story, the woman asked me a question. “Why don’t Americans honor Ronald Reagan?” She went on to explain how Ronald Reagan was highly honored in Romania because he broke away their chains by breaking down the Soviet Union.

What is our perspective of Jesus?

Our perspective of Ronald Reagan in America is very different than it is in Romania, but my purpose is not to discuss politics. My purpose is to focus on Jesus. What is our perspective of Jesus? Do we fully comprehend who Jesus is? In the first couple of weeks in the daily devotions of Quail Songs, we will be looking at how heaven views Jesus. It ought to stir us to greater humility and more profound adoration of the King of Kings.
