“For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” Romans 11:36

Life is all about focus. You will hear that sentiment whether you are listening to the words of a successful business leader, the coach of the winning team, or a motivational speaker. Where we set our eyes will set the direction of our steps; if we become distracted, our chances of success are greatly reduced. And that fact is based in Scripture; God’s word is full of examples of men and women who achieved much for God or achieved little for Him, based on where they directed their focus. And in these words, the Apostle Paul confirms to us that the best direction to focus if we want our lives to count is not inward or outward, but rather upward. Life only makes sense, life only has purpose and meaning, when God becomes our focus. A life lived to the glory of God is a life with God’s full blessing; it is a life that God will honor.
