We could all use a set of horse blinders once in a while.
There are many distractions that confront us every day. To keep us looking forward and our eyes on Jesus, we could all use a set of horse blinders!
The lesson that Saint Paul and Jesus teach us today is to focus our attention on what’s ahead and not what’s behind. How can you and your family cut out the clutter? Some ideas may be turning away from evening screen time, keeping family dinner a special and shared occurrence, or maybe it’s simply taking a walk together once a week.
Whatever it may be, don’t look behind you. Put up those horse blinders because we have a course to finish!
Continue praying for the people and world in need of our daily prayers. God bless.
