Don’t Let Distractions Keep You From Your Best



For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David.
I Kings 11:4 NKJV

Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
Proverbs 4:5 NKJV

One of the most important tests we all face as we try to achieve what God has called us to do is cultural distractions. 

No one is immune from distractions even Solomon’s heart was turned against God. With all the wisdom he had he was lured by distractions.

Can you relate to losing your focus because of any of these distractions?

The distraction of popularity. If you are always worried about what other people think, you will be distracted from your destiny.

The distraction of pleasure. It’s OK to have fun and feel comfort, but if that’s the primary focus of your life, you will never fulfill your destiny.

The distraction of profits. You can’t serve both God and money. Making a profit shouldn’t be the primary focus of your life.

The distraction of possessions. Judging your success by how much stuff you own will keep you concerned about keeping things and maintaining things.

If you are going to fulfill the mission God has given you, you must dare to be different from others. Stay focused on the most important thing: your relationship with Jesus Christ.
