Focus on God

A few years ago, I attended a ladies’ professional golf tournament. I noticed that each golfer kept her eyes focused on the ball. If the golfer took her eyes off the ball, she could become distracted by the crowd. That could affect where the ball would go.
If we want to keep our lives focused on God, we need to say “no” to the distractions in the world. These distractions may be money, our jobs, pleasures or even bad habits. Distractions affect our ministries, our attitudes and our relationships.
Focusing on God means that we will spend time praying and studying the Bible. And our Bible Reading today reminds us to focus on God, not on things here on earth.
Are you focusing on God today? If not, what things are distracting you from growing closer to Him? Ask God to help you to always look to Him.
