WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT TO SEE THE TRUTH
Today as tradition in our family goes, was the day to pick a Christmas tree. The easy decision every year is what type of tree to get. Should we get the more expensive Douglas fir or the more reasonable priced pine tree? But the more difficult process in setting up the perfect Christmas tree is placing the stand to set the tree straight in our living room.
Before setting the screws on the stand, we ask family members if the tree appears straight from their location. We always get different answers depending on their position to the tree. The person holding the tree, or nearest the tree will most always agree that the tree is straight at any position. We all finally go to each position and compromise to the final position of the tree.
I believe we can compare this to why sometimes we cannot understand the truth. We see things from only our perspective (side of the tree). We need to go around and look from different perspective to understand the whole situation. This is why we must open our minds, and also be more tolerant to people with different views.
