Devotional: Life's Distractions
Christian Devotion about the distractions of life
"...Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus,
Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith
[giving the first incentive for our belief] and
is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and
perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize]
that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising
and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the
right hand of the throne of God..." -
Hebrews 12:2 (AMPC)
There are so many things in life that can distract
us. Not all of it is bad in itself either. But,
nevertheless, if we allow ourselves to become preoccupied
by something, it can often distract us from being
preoccupied with Jesus.
We are reminded here to look away from all that would
distract us, and to look to Jesus. He is the leader
and source of our faith. He is the reason we believe.
He is also its finisher—bringing it to maturity.
Jesus never allowed the issues of life, or the pleasures
of life, to distract Him from the 'cross'—which was
the reason He came.
May we be mindful of the distractions, and not become
so preoccupied with other things.
We need to always remain on track,
For life has so much that distracts.
