Focus Like Jesus!
Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve.’”
It is so good to be in the Season of Lent; it is a time to get back to the basics!
There are so many distractions in the world that it can be so easy to lose our focus. If we follow Jesus, our focus is on worshiping and serving the Lord. That means we have to treat people with love. Of course, it is not a big issue if we treat people who are kind to us with kindness and love. However, the real challenge is to treat people who are unkind or even mean to us with kindness and love.
Do we serve the Lord God, or do we serve our emotions, our prejudices?
We need Lent!
It is easy to fall to the temptation to treat people and ourselves in a self-serving way, instead of the Jesus Way!
We need Lent to refocus our lives, because it is so easy to be a follower of evil instead of good! We see this issue in our world today, may we be different!
Have a blessed First Sunday of Lent!
