One of the greatest temptations of life is to become too absorbed in one's circumstances. So many people quickly turn their vision inward and can't seem to see beyond their circumstances. This most often can lead to tragic consequences and end up hostage to one's circumstances.

We can look and live beyond our circumstances.
