A Proper Spiritual Focus is on God, Rather than Ourselves
‘If What We Think Does Not Reflect Truth, Then What We Feel Does Not Reflect Reality’–Neil Anderson
Loosing proper focus causes many problems. It can cause us to loose our sense of perspective, or proportion, causes us to make mountains out of mole hills. To major in minors and minor in majors. To strain at a gnat –– but swallow a camel.
For example, we loose our peace when we loose our focus. “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” (Isaiah 26:3)
Jesus is trying to wake people up––so they can see properly!
The pharisees focus was spiritually distorted––disproportionate to reality––because they focused on themselves rather than on God (Luke 14:1-6).
