Two university students were talking. One lamented there wasn’t anything to do in our small town.
The other said he had once been a student in a large city where there was so much to do that his grades suffered. He felt it was to his advantage to be in a community like ours, so he could concentrate on his studies.
What one considered a liability, the other viewed as an asset.
A new perspective
The student who realized he’d be tempted to waste his time had come to know himself—and grew wiser from experience.
“. . . be careful how you walk . . . making the most of your time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:15-16).
What a difference a new perspective can make!
