I admit that sometimes my mind wanders. There are many things I should focus on or have to do, but I may daydream or allow other ideas enter my mind. As we become preoccupied by different needs or distracted by daydreams, we may need to refocus. What should be our focus?
Living in the world can be distracting. We need to maintain our focus not on the evils of revenge and retribution that are often championed by the world, but on the true, honorable, and commendable. We can focus on the love and goodness of God. When we set our minds on these things, we can be more effective at following God and fighting the evils that we witness in the world around us. With the right things on our mind, we can stand up for God and stand up to things that are not worthy of our time and attention!
Set your mind on the good things of God and fight the evils of the world!
Thank You for all the goodness that You show me. Help me to keep my mind and heart set on You so that I can be an instrument of Your love and goodness in the world. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
