Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

Big-Picture Perspective

One of the greatest benefits to be gleaned from the Bible is perspective. When we get discouraged, we temporarily lose our perspective.

Little things become mammoth. A slight irritation, such as a pebble in a shoe, seems huge. Motivation is drained away and, worst of all, hope departs.

God's Word is tailor-made for gray-slush days.

It sends a beam of light through the fog. It signals safety when we fear we'll never make it through. Such big-picture perspective gives us a hope transplant, and within a brief period of time, we have escaped the bleak and boring and we're back at soaring . . . .

We can actually stand firm through discouraging times but only if we apply God's instructions.

God's Word is tailor-made for gray-slush days. It cuts the fog with the light of truth.
