Don't Let Distractions Keep You From Your Best
“Get wisdom; develop good judgment.” (Proverbs 4:5a NLT)
One of the most important tests we all face as we try to achieve what God has called us to do is cultural distractions. Can you relate to losing your focus because of any of these distractions?
The distraction of popularity. If you are always worried about what other people think, then you will be distracted from your destiny.
The distraction of pleasure. It’s OK to have fun and feel comfort, but if that's the primary focus of your life, you will never fulfill your destiny.
The distraction of profits. You can’t serve both God and money. Making a profit shouldn’t be the primary focus of your life.
The distraction of possessions. Judging your success by how much stuff you own will keep you concerned about keeping things and maintaining things.
If you are going to fulfill the mission God has given you, then you must dare to be different from others. Stay focused on the most important thing: your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Talk It Over
- Which of these distractions have kept you from achieving God's best for your life?
- What practical steps do you need to take to help minimize these distractions in your life?
- Pray for God to give you the courage to go against cultural standards and be different.
