Things that distract us (take us out of focus)– cares of this world; vindicating ourselves (always needing to explain ourselves); using discernment to criticize or judge. These are a few “threads of life” that will entangle us and keep us away from God unless we continually maintain our focus–second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day . . .
This is an excellent thought for me today for many reasons.
