There was a young boy who grew up on a farm and was waiting for the day that he could plow his first field. That great day came and his dad said, “I just have one piece of advice as you are plow across this huge field. Pick out one object on the other side of the field and keep your eyes focused on it, and you will go straight toward it.” The boy got on the big tractor, and he was excited! He took off across the field and when he got to the other side he looked back and realized that he’d plowed what looked to be the curviest line ever. He asked his dad, “Why is my row so crooked?” His father said, “What were you looking at, son?” The boy said, “I had my eyes firmly placed on a cow.”We should be fixing our eyes on Jesus rather than our circumstances.

This is exactly what we do as Christians. Instead of fixing our eyes on the unchanging Jesus we focus our sight on the instability of our careers, pleasures, or money. If we aren’t careful and focused now, when we look back at our lives instead of a straight path, we’ll find a path that’s gone all over the map. But, if we keep our eyes on Jesus, we will have stability, and we’ll have peace. We have to keep looking to Jesus.
Help us continue helping others!
Isaiah 26:3 (NKJV)
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”
Colossians 3:1-3 (NKJV)
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Hebrews 2:8-9 (NKJV)
For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
