Luke 9:62 - But Jesus said to him, "No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God." NASU
Please allow me to paraphrase what Jesus said, If you begin to plow a field keep your eyes straight ahead, don't be looking around. You can't plow straight furrows when you are looking all around.
The person who stays focus is the person you want on your team. This person will not be distracted by what is going on all around them.
We watched the love of money change them, or the love of being popular, or the stupidity of thinking drugs was going to help them in anyway.
If you want your dreams to come crashing down then lose your focus on what is important.
The one who is able to drive the car without texting. The one who puts their hand to the plow and doesn't look back.
This person has the dedication to accomplishing the goal that is before them. Anything that tries to take them off course is immediately squelched and they are wise enough to know there will always be something trying to distract them from accomplishing their goal.
So what is your goal today?
What are you doing to fulfill your dream?
Hopefully, you are making sure nothing distracts you. Take the advice of Jesus once you put your hands to the plow don't look back.
Think On These:
A man with a burning ambition is seldom fired.
Too many of us shoot blanks when aiming at our goals.
Enthusiasm is apt to breed more action than accuracy.
