Thursday Thoughts – Where is your focus?
What do you spend most of your time doing and thinking about? How about where you spend your money? Sometimes it’s hard to evaluate critically our own behaviors, but when we’re honest with ourselves we can learn a lot. The bible gives us clear direction on where our focus should be. Look to things are that are “unseen.” But what types of things are unseen. A few examples would be our eternal home in heaven, our relationship with Jesus, our relationship with others. Too often we are distracted by what we see and by all the “stuff” we accumulate. There are so many messages that come our way and threaten to distract us from spending time with God. If you’re feeling out of balance take some time to evaluate what is driving you, the seen or the unseen?
2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes not on what was seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
