Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you.—Proverbs 4:25
Fellas, today, it is so easy to get distracted. We are bombarded with thoughts, ideas, concepts, and images that are near overwhelming. Much of this is creating unthinkable stress for so many men. And, also, we must not forget we have our daily challenges at work, in relationships, and within our personal life that have not gone away. So what is a man to do? Well, this writer suggests looking directly forward. But look forward to what, or instead to whom? The answer is simple—Jesus Christ. But doing so requires that we eliminate other distractions. Maybe today, we need to remove one so that gazing straight before you is just a little easier.
DO THIS: Consider one distraction that is clouding your gaze and remove it today.
PRAY THIS: God, my thoughts are bombarded. I feel far from you amidst all the turmoil. Draw me closer to you by helping me to remove the distractions.
