Each person has a different set of experiences and abilities, and our view of the world differs because of that. A starving person will look at a piece of bread in a different way than a person who has been well fed. We don't see things the way they are; we just see them the way we are.

There is nothing wrong with the fact that our perception is colored and determined by all that we are as a person. Knowing that our perception may not be accurate is where wisdom and humility are needed. We have no choice but to see the world through our own mind development—but we can learn to stand back and try to see the other side of a circumstance. Our Creator offers us a chance to come and reason together with Him (Isaiah 1:18 Isaiah 1:18Come now, and let us reason together, said the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
American King James Version×
