Are You Focused?

I enjoy bowling, so I occasionally watch instructional videos. One such video, however, left me disappointed. The teacher presented a swing that had at least 8 steps and a dozen sub-points under each step. That was just too much information! While I'm not the very best, years of playing have taught me this: The ,more thoughts you have in your head as you swing, the less likely you are to be successful. You must simplify your thought process and focus on what matters most, making solid contact with the bass. The teacher's many points got in the way.

In life, we must focus on what matters most. In the book of Philippians 3, Paul describes how that relates to the Christian. Rather than being distracted by lesser things, he wanted to focus on what mattered most. He said, "One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus".

One thing I do. In a world of distractions, it's vital for the child of God to stay focused, and there is no better point of focus in the universe than Jesus Christ Himself. Is He what matters most to you?
