This world has many distractions. We can easily find dozens of excuses as to why we do not focus on the things that matter. God wants us to look straight ahead and to focus on Him and His path for us. Proverbs 4:25 says, Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. When a farmer is planting rows, he does not look down at his feet, he fixes his eye on a point in the distance in order to maintain a straight row. If we do the same with God and fix our eyes on Him, He well make our path straight.
