What Are You Staring At?

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:18)

My son is a massive fan of challenging people to an unexpected staring contest. It was fun at first, but sometimes it is annoying. We will be in the middle of something and he will look you in the face and say “staring contest. 3, 2, 1, Go!” He thinks he is really good at it and he might be, but I usually don’t have the patience in those moments to endure a long staring contest.

Recently one of these staring contests reminded me of the law of attention. It is a principle that says something like “whatever it is you choose to focus upon and give attention to will develop or manifest into your life.”

This verse gives us vital wisdom of what we should fix our eyes upon and why. We are to focus on and fix our eyes up that which is unseen. The things that are seen that we could choose to fixate upon could be momentary issues or things that bear little significance. Instead we are to fix our eyes on Jesus. When we fix our eyes upon Christ we take our main focus on the small stuff. Those small things don’t go away, but we change our perspective. When we change our perspective we often find that the things that are seen and temporary are not worth our time or our focus.

Imagine what your life would look like if you were to fix your eyes upon Jesus.

Question: What are some things that you possibly focus on that are a waste of energy and effort?

Challenge: Choose today to fix your eyes on Jesus instead of momentary or temporary issues and pay close attention to how fixing your eyes on Jesus changes things.

Prayer: Jesus. Help me to fix my eyes on you. I want to focus on things that are honoring to You and I desire to be more like You. Help me to look deeply at your word and at how You desire to lead my life.
