Adjust the Focus

Hebrews 12:2 (NLT)
We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.  Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame.  Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.

We move toward whatever we focus on.  If you think about what someone else can do rather than what you can do, you feel slighted.  If you dwell on your wish list of ‘toys’, you don’t enjoy what you already have.  If you keep telling yourself  not to eat the M&Ms on the counter, you eventually eat them (at least I do).

So how do we follow Jesus’ example?  By knowing Him through prayer and scripture, then using that scripture as guard rails to stay on track.  By viewing the details of life through His lense.  By journeying with spiritual friends and Christian community.  By focusing on the positive and letting the rest fade away.

How can you adjust your focus to move closer to Jesus?
