As my daughter gets older, she is learning how to focus on a project, whether it is building something, reading, or completing homework. It reminds me that even though we may be older, we need to be aware of our focus. There are a lot of distractions around us, but we need to be sure we are focused...on the right things!
Society may pull on us, trying to get us to focus on gaining human approval. We may be reminded that our looks, thoughts, and actions should conform to certain ways deemed acceptable by society. However, we are reminded in the Bible that we are called to a higher purpose. We do have to live and interact in society, but our focus should be on what is pleasing to God. If we choose to focus on people and not God, we lose sight of our calling to serve God and His Son, Jesus Christ. We need to be sure that as we grow in our faith, we learn to become increasingly focused on God and being a servant of Him!
Learn to maintain your focus on God and work to serve Him and His Kingdom!
Thank You for Your Word and the lessons that it teaches. Help me to always be focused on You, Your will in my life, and how my thoughts and actions can be directed for Your glory. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
