“Where is your Focus?”
In my younger days I did a lot of mountain biking. Not only did I do a lot of mountain biking, I did a lot of crashing on my mountain bike. So much that a friend of mine asked me, “Are you trying to hit every rock and root on the trail.” Of course not, but I just couldn’t stop from hitting them. So he asked, “What are you thinking when you see a rock coming?” I told him that I’m looking at the rock and thinking, “Don’t hit the rock, don’t hit the rock, don’t hit the rock.” And then I hit the rock.
He said, “Stop looking at the obstacle, and look at the clear path around the obstacle.” It completely changed the way I was able to ride a mountain bike.
In this chapter, Jesus is teaching us to stop looking at the worldly obstacles in front of us. Instead keep your focus on the clear path, on the Kingdom of God.
What area of your life are you struggling to keep your focus on God?
