Focus


“Too much activity may shift your focus away from God…I can trace most of the challenges in my life to the times when I began to focus more on trivial distractions rather than on my spiritual life…The best way to focus our life on God is remain conscious of the transitory nature of this earthly existence.” (Life Application Study Bible, Joshua 4:1-24. Father Barnabas Powell, Dynamis 7/12/2018)

"Eternity is too often viewed as that possibility which comes after this life. In fact it should be our goal and our focus, and the life of this world should be seen as the prelude, the experience that comes before. Eternity should be what dominates our thinking and actions." (Father Spyridon Baily)

“The key to living a life free of distractions and filled with clarity, purpose, and focus is the cultivation of gratitude and generosity. A grateful, generous person is a focused person. Gratitude and generosity equal spiritual health.” (Father Barnabas Powell)

“If you want peace, focus on being grateful first and foremost…Being grateful for what you do have is a step towards peace. Focusing on God through prayer brings peace. Losing sight of God brings conflict, so make dedicated time each day to focus on God.” (Fr. Stavros N. Akrotirianakis)

“...our primary role as spiritual leaders isn’t making people see eye to eye. It’s making sure our eyes are focused on Jesus… our relationship with Christ is what life is all about. Our relationship with Him is the single most important thing in our lives.” (Mark Batterson, Sacramental Living Blog)
