Who Are You Watching?

watchingYou’re an expert now! Mike, a friend of mine, heard this just after finishing a motocross (motor cycle) race. Last year Mike was in the beginner class and had just moved up to the intermediate class. There were jumps and speeds that still unnerved him.
In this particular race, Mike was dueling with another rider. If he tried to pass, the other rider would move in front of him. If he tried to speed up, the rider in front would hit the throttle as well. This went on the entire race. He was never able to pass the other rider, who eventually won.
Mike was exhilarated over the race, but disappointed he hadn’t won. His disappointment soon changed. An expert rider, who was watching the race, came to congratulate him on his times and asked if Mike was racing the following week. Mike said, “I’m not in the expert class.” Come to find out, this duel pushed both riders to cross the finish line in expert class times!
Mike was so focused on the rider ahead of him, he forgot all about his speed concerns. His fears weren’t present because he simply kept his eyes on the front rider.
Hebrews 12:2, “Fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of your faith.” You stay focused and keep acting on the truths Jesus gives you and your life will be changed. You become what you focus on and what you focus on gets bigger. Who are you focusing on?
