Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. – Colossians 3:2 (NIV)
What do you spend the majority of your time thinking about? Is it how you can get ahead? Is it making the basketball team? What holds the majority of your focus?
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make the basketball team. And there’s certainly nothing wrong with wanting to do well in life. However, when those types of things become all we’re consumed with, we need to refocus our thoughts.
God hasn’t called us to simply do well at basketball. Instead, He has called us to help others. We are to be loving others, doing things to help people and point them to Him.
Today’s Challenge: Be Eternally Focused
Often our lives get so busy, we forget that we are called to be pointing others to Jesus.
So take a moment today and examine your life. Have you allowed your focus to shift off of Jesus and onto success or things? If so, choose today to focus your thoughts and energy on Jesus. Live your life in a way that brings glory to Him.
Today, look for ways to help others. Choose to do things that point people to Jesus. Do things that make the world a better place because you were there. The more you do that, the happier you’ll be!
