02 Jul Distractions….
The other day I decided to do a working breakfast. I was alert and motivated to get ahead on a big project. I sat down at a local restaurant, ordered a coffee, and began to work. However, whenever I would type and lift my arms off the table, I noticed my left arm stuck to the table. Don’t you love it when the last guys pancake syrup gets left behind! I tried to wipe it up and refocus, but no matter how determined I was, the constant sticking of my arm to the table distracted me. It was then that I thought about how easy it is in life to allow the little things to distract us from what we should be doing. Sometimes it doesn’t take a lot to disrupt our focus. In fact, I would say many times we spend our time on what matters least. Colossians 3:2 says, “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” Whether in your pursuit of daily goals or your attempt to stat focused on Kingdom-minded goals, be aware of the distractions along the way that so easily draw you in. Find practical ways to stay focused on your true purpose!
