Focus


        What do you spend the majority of your time thinking about? Is it the stock market? Is it a sports team? What holds the majority of your focus? Sometimes it’s hard to stay focus on the things that really matter. There’s nothing wrong with wanting your sport team to win. And there’s certainly nothing wrong with wanting to do well in life. However, when those types of things become all we’re consumed with, we need to refocus our thoughts.

        We live in a world that is super-fast paced and we forget the reason why we’re here. Paul reminds us in Colossians 3 to “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” God wants us to think about Christ and what he has done for us. If we let our thoughts dwell on evil things, they will eventually become part of our attitude toward life.

        Jesus reminds us on the Sermon on the Mount that we shouldn’t lay up for ourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal because the things that really matter are not of this world because everything on this earth will fade away. God hasn’t called us to simply do well in life. Instead, He has called us to help others. We are to be loving others, doing things to help people and point them to Him. SANMAN!!!
