Thought of the Day—Have you ever noticed when sunflowers bloom, their large mustard yellow heads and black faces continue to follow the sun all throughout the day? It’s part of their DNA, how they are created. Here’s a question for you; what turns your head? What drives you, where do your passions lie, what peaks your interests? If you have trouble answering that question, you are not alone. But there is a caution that aligns with our hesitancy. For in this age of gimmicks, fads, trends and instant gratification, we are very easily distracted by those things that fade almost as fast as they appear and we end up looking like…well…bobble heads, never really focused in on anything of substance. Today I challenge you to reexamine the “head turners” in your life. Are they contributing to your life or eternal goals? Remember, we all have the same hours of every day and only one life here on this earth with no promise for tomorrow. Are we being good stewards of the time we have been given?
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)
