FOCUS

READ: Philippians 3:13-15

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain
1 Corinthians 9:24
Every great human achievement is the result of concentration. Every great military battle is won by bringing all forces to concentrate on a single objective. Every great ministry accomplishes things for God by concentrating on a single vision.
Concentration makes people work faster. The faster you work, the more energy and interest you will have; the slower you work, the more tired and uninterested you become. The more delays to projects, the more discouraged everyone becomes (Proverbs 13:12).
Concentration depends solely on the ability to distinguish between the relevant and the irrelevant. Anyone who cannot decide on what is important will never use the power of concentration. Do not be deceived by the pressure of urgent calls, invitations, and emergencies. Urgent things are not usually important in the total picture, and important things are seldom urgent.
The greatest thief of concentration is the telephone. When I start praying, I switch off all phones. Another thief of concentration is useless socializing and yet another, the television. People who concentrate on their God-given tasks are accused of being unsociable, proud, unpatriotic and inward looking.
Inject urgency into all your projects. This will make people concentrate on the task. Concentration keeps everyone from backbiting, envy, jealousy and strife. Finish one thing at a time; unfinished projects break concentration. They distract you and pull you into the past.
