CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Talked about a book I am reading (The One Thing) that has challenged me to think through how my time is planned and used (or the lack there of) and the importance of focus. Encouraged PAX to focus on the one thing that they should do in their faith, marriage, family, career, etc. to move forward and get better. Further encouraged them to think about the one thing they needed to accomplish today. “Extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus” (quote from book).
Reading this book has resonated with several passages of scripture. I mentioned to the PAX the story of Joshua leading the Israelites into the promised land after Moses died. Specifically the passage where Joshua encourages the group to consider where their focus was… on false gods of Egypt, on false gods of the Amorites where they were standing, or in the one true God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. “Choose today whom you will serve… as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15)
Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.”
Matthew 6:33-34 “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
