Perspective

This photo of Landscape Arch was taken a couple of years ago at Arches National Park. It is a good example of how perceptions depend on your perspective. I think it is hard to get any real idea of just how high and long this Arch is. There is no real sense of depth/distance and nothing in the photo gives a sense of size.

Landscape Arch has the longest span of any natural Arch in the US (290 feet) and is 77 feet high. Amazingly, at the thinnest point, it is only 6 feet thick. You can no longer walk under the Arch because some large chunks (over 30 feet long) fell off in the 1990s.

It is also hard to gain perspective on the problems and challenges that people face in their lives. It’s easy to assume that someone “has it made.” Little do we know the difficulties they may be facing. Thankfully, God not only knows the challenges each of us face, God provides what we need to face them.
