Kind and Dizzy

OUR STORY …

The nuns were having an interesting conversation about the different kinds of people in the world. Sister Charlie said she believed the worst kind of person was an unkind person.

It wasn’t that sister Lulu disagreed with Sr. Charlie as much as it was that she really couldn’t wrap her head around Sr Charlie’s description of different kinds of people.

The conversation got a little confusing. Herman was glad he overheard it firsthand rather than having to listen to someone else attempt to explain it later.

IT IS WRITTEN …

The Bible tells us not to fixate on the troubles we can see around us everyday. Instead, we should learn to see the unseen. The troubles that try to capture our attention right now will soon be gone. While the unseen will be with us forever (2Cor 4:18).

LIFE GOES ON …

As Herman thought about the dizzying events he had witnessed earlier in the day with his friends at the Catholic bookstore, he recalled the passage in 2 Corinthians. That’s when he realized the importance of perspective.

Perspective explains why good people don’t always agree on important issues. Where we stand in the world and the direction we’re facing greatly determines what we see — and what we don’t see. In a practical way, our life and it’s experiences give us a unique perspective. We can use our perspective to enrich others around us or to sow strife.

To solve the unsolvable, it’s necessary to understand that your perspective is but one of many authentic viewpoints of the world. Be at peace today and help someone with a different perspective find peace too.

That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. It’s cool to be Catholic. COOL2B!

In Christ.
