Life is just plain hard sometimes and it is so easy to fix our minds on the difficulties we face. It is a great time to focus on me, me and me. As I read Matthew 27:32-44 today, I realized that while Jesus was being mocked, flogged and crucified, His focus stayed on God and others. He didn't complain about the pain or how hard it was to endure. He didn't turn away from God because He didn't save Him from the pain. He continued a life of worship even in His agony.
This realization brings much conviction to my heart.
Are you turning away from God because of your pain? Are you fixed on your hurts and your fears instead of focusing on God and others?
May we all continue to live a life of worship no matter what our circumstances may be.
