A Way of Looking at Life

“I am concerned with a certain way of looking at life, which was create in me by the fairy tales, but has since been ratified by the mere facts.” — G. K. Chesterton

What did Chesterton mean with those words?

“I am concerned with a certain way of looking at life, ”

There are different ways of looking at life. The Jesus follower must pray that Jesus allows us to see as He sees! Because He truly Sees (capital S) as no one else sees.

“which was create in me by the fairy tales,”

A fairy tale or myth as in “story,” points to the greater reality, most times greater than what we can perceive is true in this life.

“but has since been ratified by the mere facts.”

Mere facts, is truth, reality, and data from what we observe.

Thank you G. K. Chesterton for helping us see the larger reality in life.
