Directional Eye Site

Always remember your focus determines your direction.
I recently was on a plane when a commercial came on the above head TV that caught my eye. It showed a rather heavy person exercising to a workout video playing on a screen above a giant muffin sitting on a plate.
You could see the person constantly eyeing the muffin. Was it an incentive or distraction? This person didn’t want to lose weight. They really wanted to eat the muffin and had to put out enough calories in order to do so.
If you want to stay the same, keep focusing on the muffin while doing Christian activities. If it’s your desire to become more like Jesus, however, you’ll have to change your focus. It’s like a mountain biker friend once told me, “Your bike goes where your eyes see.”
Scripture says to set your mind on things above, not on earthly things. By doing so, you’ll not only become more like Jesus, you’ll also be ready for His return.
