07 May Unchanging Lessons for Leaders: Focus
LIFE LESSONS ABOUT FOCUS
Our focus has a lot to do with our vision, expectation and what we pay attention to as we function in life. The scripture says “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” What are we seeing? What are we looking unto with our mind’s eye? Having an eye for a better tomorrow seems good but it is better if the future expectation is based on the Word of God. Jesus was more focused on doing the will of the Father than on His convenience. Whatever we focus on will determine our strength. Many focus on being successful but that will not stand the test of time. If Jesus, for the joy set before Him endured the cross and despised the shame is sat on the right hand of the Father, we also can look at pleasing the Father as our goal even if it means the cross. A broken focus means broken strength. Whatever you focus on will influence the direction your life will go. Focus on Christ and eternal realities and you will have the strength to endure. Stay focussed on any task at hand and see to the completion of the project before you. Remember that distraction is always a drainer for the resources available to you in life. Stay focussed and rightly so!
