Joshua 23:6,11 24:14
verse 23:6 “Be very strong; be careful to obey all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, without turning aside to the right or to the left.”
This verse describes keeping one’s attention on what is important. Turning our attention away or in a direction other than toward God is the first step in straying from Him. I like the idea of having a warning signal: a little whistle or horn informing us we have started down the wrong path. (Like when our GPS tells us to make a u-turn, and we know we are going the wrong way.)
We sing these words every week: “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in his wonderful face...”. It is so simple!
Lord, may I remember to keep my eyes and my heart and my attention on you. When I think I don’t know which way to turn, I am wrong. I can always turn to you. Amen
