Focus for Today

Today let us focus our hearts on God and our eyes away from worthless things. The world is full of so much that we tend to focus too easily on the petty, insignificant things that then become the things our hearts dwell upon. If we are not careful, the things we dwell upon will be what flows out from our lives. If we dwell upon the lies we tell ourselves that will be what we produce. If we dwell upon the goodness and path of God, imagine what we could produce today.

Direct me in the path of your commands,
    for there I find delight.
 Turn my heart toward your statutes
    and not toward selfish gain.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
    preserve my life according to your word.

Psalm 119: 35-37
