Today’s Readings: Psalm 70; Isaiah 50:4-9a; John 13:21-30; Hebrews 12:1-3; Psalm 116

Featured Reading:
Hebrews 12:1-3

Most of us have several aspects of our lives that are always clamoring for our attention: our families, our jobs, our friends, our volunteer work, our hobbies… the list could go on and on. Much of the time we feel as if we’re being pulled in a thousand different directions. As a result of being spread so thin, many of us live in a space where we constantly feel inadequate: always wishing we could tend to something else – rarely being fully present in the moment. So how could we shift the dynamics in our lives and arrive at a place where we can regain a sense of focus? The author of Hebrews suggests how we could do that. “Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in,” the author suggested. “Study how [Jesus] did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed” (Hebrews 12:2 from The Message). As you navigate your course through your busy schedule today, keep these words in mind. See if they help motivate you to keep things in perspective and maintain your focus on where the Spirit is leading you. Til next time…
