The Kitchen Table Devotional: The Game of Life Day 66
“Eyes On the Road”
And hearing this, Jesus *said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Mark 2:17
We’ve got this big life to travel through; let’s keep our eyes on the road. It’s so easy to be distracted. And it’s easy to lose our focus right at the start of our trip. When you don’t know where you’re going, any stop will work. Jesus keep His eyes on the road, and it was at the get-go that He was bombarded with all sorts of things to distract Him. Something we can learn from Jesus’ life. Jesus knew His where because He knew His why and He knew His why because He knew His who He was living for in this life. He wasn’t distracted by those who thought they were right but was determined to help and heal those who knew they were wrong. He wasn’t here to please man but He was here to please His Father. It’s a lot easier to keep our eyes on the road when we know why we’re on the road in the first place and who we’re going to see.
