See the Big Picture

Seeing the big picture will help keep us from the fear of man, from worrying about what others think of us and about our 'status' in the eyes of others. Charles Spurgeon recognised this. This is what he said to his pastors college:
O brethren, we shall soon have to die! We look each other in the face to-day in health, but there will come a day when others will look down upon our pallid countenances as we lie in our coffins ... It will matter little to us who shall gaze upon us then, but it will matter eternally how we have discharged our work during our lifetime.
