The Central Focus

 I was blessed this morning during our church service when one of the brothers stated something to the effect of that if our lives are not coming out like Christ's, then our lives are not centered around Christ. That statement really hit home to me. How many times have I spoken sharply to one of my sisters or begrudgingly cleaned up a mess of another family member? It was in those times my central focus was not on Christ, it was on myself. When Christ becomes our central focus, our lives will then align up to Christ's character.  "Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." (Phil. 2: 4-5) It may seem that this verse sounds taxing at first, but I can testify that there truly is a joy that comes with serving others. And that is what our calling as daughters is all about ~ serving and blessing our families. If Christ is not our central focus, then everything we do is in vain, just as Satan would want it to be. Praise God, it doesn't have to be! Let's make Christ our central focus today!
