I came across the results of a national Gallup Poll in America which asked the question – “does the earth revolve around the sun, or does the sun revolve around the earth?”
The results were as follows:
Earth revolves around the sun – 79%
Sun revolves around the earth – 18%
No opinion – 3%
How we perceive things may not actually be the reality, but it exists as truth to that person.
Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV) says “As a man (sic) thinks in his heart, so is he.”
Perception is a powerful thing.
It can shape our reality, attitude, what we think, how we feel and how we communicate.
What is your current perception of your life, your job, the tasks you perform?
What’s your perception of the people around you?
Is it healthy, responsive and hope-filled or does it need to change?
Be conscious of your perceptions.
And where they could be more clear, visionary and hopeful – commit to challenging them and viewing things differently.
