Have you ever wondered why so many celebrities, eminent persons in society, Christian and political leaders tend to fall? All of the goodness, integrity, loyalty, an respect they had is diminish the moment they loose their focus. Everyone of us face the tag-of- war of staying focus in one way or the other. Sometimes it's hard stay focus completely on one thing when we have so many priorities. But if we loose sight of the main thing, we may loose everything. Why do you think many Christians tend to find that their lives are going out of control. They realize that the power of control they thought they had is not strong enough to keep up with the challenges along the way. We have simply lost our focus on God.
If you loose your focus on God, you will loose focus on everything else. Never forget who the real boss is. Never go against His expectations. The most dominant factor of the destruction or fall of many successful people is pride.-Or, that's what I believe!
As Christians, we should never forget why we do what we do. Whatever we do is for the glory of our KING. When the test of times comes, think about the reward in the long run rather than the challenges that you face in the short term. Eliminate the distractions. Focus on what really matters.
“It’s not what’s happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it’s your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you’re going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.”
- Anthony Robbins
