Have you ever spent too much time looking in the rear view mirror, watching what your kid/kids are doing in the backseat and not paying attention to the road in front of you? Making sure the most important thing has our best focus takes daily commitment. There are always things every week that crop up unexpectedly that distract us.
Set a goal of staying focused this week on the things of God.
13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
