I am seldom distracted by the meaningless, the paltry, the obvious waste of time. I am quite often, though, distracted by the good. I want to please people. I want to be liked. I want to be be known. And I put off the best for the sake of some really good things, just not the best things. Jesus said “Seek first, the Kingdom of God.” Keep the main thing the main thing. Stay focused on the very best God has for you. That begins with quiet time with Him each morning.
“God, help me, all day to day, to be able to discern what is best, what is really your will, and do that, even if it means saying no to some good stuff. Teach me to put You first.”
