When You Lose Focus
I lost focus recently. You may not have noticed. In fact, I think few people around me saw it. Guess what?
I took my eyes off of not what, but rather Who I needed to keep them on. It wasn’t long, but that’s all it takes. Just a glance this way or that direction.
So what did I do?
I looked to some others who lost focus.
Martha lost focus.
She took her eyes off Christ. She was focused on some good things. She was focused on making Christ’s visit in her home special. The problem was that, unlike her sister Mary, she wasn’t focused on making Christ special in her home. She took her eyes off the ball. She whiffed.
Peter lost focus.
Standing in the boat watching Jesus walk across the water, Peter wanted nothing more than to be with Jesus doing the miraculous. Jesus beckoned him to come and Peter jumped out of the boat. He began to walk toward Jesus. Then he lost focus. He watched everything around him. He began to sink.
How do you regain your focus? That’s a post for Thursday. Come back again and I will explore regaining our focus.
Have you ever lost focus? Have you taken your eyes off what matter most?
