Here’s something I’m learning every day as I work in my counseling office: If you ask three people who witnessed the same event, you will get three different accounts.
That’s why, in the Old Testament, it was required that a man could not be convicted by the testimony of just one person. It had to be two or more.Even then, if their account differed, it was highly questionable.
Why is that? It’s because we see things from our own perspective. A woman sees her marriage from one perspective; a man from his own perspective, which can be miles apart from hers. The trick I have to perform is to help them see the truth in the middle.
Your perspective is your reality. If you can’t or won’t allow for anyone else’s perspective, you’re going to be a very lonely person.
