Sharp

Sharp…

Ecclesiastes 10:10 says, “When the axe is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is required. But wisdom brings success.”

It’s simple but profound. This isn’t just true for an axe or knife, but for our lives. If we do things that get little results and drain our energy in life, then we aren’t being effective for God because our axe is dull. We have to become sharp.

A sharp edge is a focused edge. In photography, sharp means focused. If you live your life without focus, your life becomes dull, and you don’t accomplish much.

Become like Paul, focused on the Lord. He didn’t do things without aim; everything was focused on Jesus. He had purpose and his life was consistent. He wasn’t all over the place, he had a point, an aim, and a focus in everything he did, and he changed the world.

So you, too. Don’t live all over the place – unfocused. Make Jesus the focus of everything. Fix your eyes on Him and run the race. Then, you’ll become like a newly sharpened knife, and you’ll be able to slice through your problems like butter.

Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Proverbs 4:25

Today, practice focus. Keep your eyes fixed on the Lord, and keep your spiritual mind sharp by filling it with the Word of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
