I am sure you have heard the warnings about Distracted Driving. We are all aware that it is illegal and dangerous. In 2015 alone3,477 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers. One out of every four car accidents in the U.S. is caused by texting while driving. Distracted driving is a foolish decision.
But have you ever thought about Distracted Living? Every day we receive a downpour of emails, phone calls, and texts that can distract us from things that are important. We have errands and chores that seem to keep us from our ultimate priority and purpose. Our mind is constantly moving, but in the wrong direction. A mind that is constantly distracted is not only dangerous but unproductive and unhappy.
Jesus dealt with distracted living in His Sermon on the Mount. Life’s worries and concerns can cause your life to derail and end up going in a direction you never attended.
This Sunday I will continue a summer sermon series called Running on Empty. We are discovering what leaves us empty and what will fill us.
So far I have talked about stress and sickness. This week I will talk about distractions. Whether it’s the cluttered inbox to your emails or the to-do list that never ends, our life is full of causes that distract us from our priorities.
If you need to readjust your life to make sure your priorities get priority time, you are going to get a lot out of this Sunday’s sermon. I will share 2 principles Jesus gave His disciples on how to prioritize your life. In addition, I’m going to give you a few of my own ‘personal life hacks’ to help you have focused living. I hope you can share some of yours with me.
Join us this Sunday, July 30 @ 10:30 a.m.
