What is your focus on?

It has been said that what you focus on, is what you see.  At a conference I attended, we watched a video and were instructed to count how many times a group of students who were wearing white shirts, passed a basketball.  I purposely looked only at the team who had white shirts.  When the video was over, the instructor asked what we thought of the gorilla. "What Gorilla?", I thought. The video was played again and right there in the middle of the video, a gorilla walked through the group of students. 

Because I was focused on the team in white shirts, I only saw them. 
Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. Hebrews 3:1

Isn't it that way in our spiritual lives as well?  

What we focus on is what we see! We have a choice to focus on Jesus or to focus on other things. When we only see the problem we can't see the solution.

We can focus on;


We can put our focus on Jesus

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
