A woman gets into her car to drive to her friend’s house. The sun is bright, so she puts on her sunglasses. The tint of her sun glasses changes the way she sees the scenery outside of her car and actually helps her to see where she is going. In the same way, a biblical worldview helps a person to clearly see God’s view and align with it.
