One of the hardest things to do in life is to keep your focus when a million things are trying to distract you!
Focus is a discipline.
I love football and one of the skills that makes a quarterback a great quarterback is his ability to stand in the pocket, keep his eyes focused down field while completing a pass to his intended target with defenders trying to take his head off, linebackers trying to take his knees out and crowds making noise.
Jesus is the best example of focus.
Luke 9:51 (NLT) says: “As the time drew near for him to ascend to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.”
He made up His mind to compete his mission! He “resolutely set out.”
Ignore the noise. Focus.
Stop majoring in minors. Focus.
Stop wasting energy on distractions. Focus.
Stop letting people get in your head. Focus.
Winston Church Hill said “You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw rocks at every dog that barks.”
