Focus is about having the discipline, when there are so many competing things.
I’m not sure about you, but I think the world is going completely crazy. Things that, 10 years ago, would have been perceived as being ludicrous, is now accepted as normal. Never before, has society been so distracted, as what it is today. And because we have completely lost focus, we end up standing for nothing, and therefore, falling for everything.
The secret to living a true life of purpose is centred around one single word – FOCUS! When we allow our attention to be divided, we stifle our potential to grow. We then become like a lawn, that covers a large area, but gets tramped on in the process. There’s no upward growth happening – it’s all sideways. But when we choose to focus our lives on the very One who desires our focus, then we start to truly live.
When we place our eagle-eyed focus on Jesus Christ, nothing the world tries to throw at us will cause us to stumble. When our focus is on the One who is truth, we identify lies without a problem. When we place our focus on the One who is love, then we can immediately spot that, which is presented as love, but is not. When we place our focus on the One who is the Way, we will never get lost in the confusion of this world.
I just want to encourage every Christian who is reading this. Despite the chaos in the world, our God has never relinquished His authority. He has, and always will be the Creator and the Ruler of the universe. To those who are reading this who do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, there is still time. He loves you so much and following Him is the only thing that will make sense amidst all the confusion.
So please don’t take your eyes off the King. Please don’t allow distractions to steal your attention away from the One who gave all His attention to you and me, when He hung on the cross.
Have an awesome day!
