JAN 18 – FOCUS

01/18 Luke 12:15-21
Then he said, “Beware! Don’t be greedy for what you don’t have. Real life is not measured by how much we own.” 16 And he gave an illustration: “A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. 17 In fact, his barns were full to overflowing. 18 So he said, ‘I know! I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I’ll have room enough to store everything. 19 And I’ll sit back and say to myself, My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!’ 20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get it all?’ 21 “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”
FOCUS
What is the focus of your life? Are you overwhelmed with problems? Sit down and take stock of what is going on in your life. Is Jesus the focus? Make Him your focus and let Him give you the wisdom, mercy, grace and understanding that you need. Additionally, ask Him to deal with the difficulties you are facing. Jesus is Lord and you are first with Him.
