Focus on The Lord

Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.  May The Lord bless you and pour His grace upon you and your loved ones.

Living in the world of the present, we find -- in addition to the wonders created by modern technology -- our senses are constantly under seige from a multitude of distractions created by that technology.  We are constantly bombarded by television with sleaze, sexually explicit programming, violence, and the most disfunctional members of society.  Movies take this to an even higher level . . . Or lower level, depending upon your preference of wording.

All of these distractions, as well as many other forms of distraction, make it very difficult to maintain a Christian perspective and lifestyle.  As a result, it is more important than ever to maintain our focus on The Lord.  Do not be sidetracked by all of the distractions.

There have always been distractions, but they seem to be much greater today due to current technology.  So, as The Bible tells us in Collossians 3:2 (NRSV), ''Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.''

Also, in addition to maintaining our focus on The Lord, let us keep in mind the first and greatest commandment, which is related in Matthew 22:37-38 (NRSV), ''You shall love The Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.''

No matter how difficult it may be, let us keep those two important points in mind: 1) Focus on The Lord, and 2) Love The Lord.

May God bless you and your loved ones.

Your humble servant in Christ.
