“…Staying focused is not that difficult when we weigh the consequences of distraction….”

Distractions are a deal-killer…believe me…you.  I know firsthand’ as I’ve allowed myself to be distracted at the most inopportune times, and have regretted it… too often.  Distractions are not permitted excuses for failing to do our best, or simply put….screwing things up royally.  We allow distractions to interfere with our family life, our kids, our spouses, our job, and even….our
prayer life.  Even simple things, such as driving a car.  Being distracted while driving… could be dangerous for your health.  Not paying attention to our jobs, our children, our spouses….all… could be… disastrous.  Children could go astray, even spouse’s stray, and customer’s move on to other suppliers.  But fear not…God does not abandon us.  Even though we often get distracted during Church, during prayer, during meditation …God still does not abandon us.  God is tolerant.  He is the God of “second chances.”   Staying focused is not that difficult when we weigh the consequences of distraction.   Luke 10:38-40 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching.  But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” Blessings…cjlb…3/14/14
