Warrior Poet: Hebrews 12:1-2

Hebrews 12:1-2:  1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Dear Warrior Poet,

We often lose sight of the original vision for our lives and busy ourselves with lesser things. A distraction is looking away to other matters and taking our eyes off the focus of our lives. We entertain ourselves to relax, we amuse ourselves to feel satisfied and as we strive for more and more comfort we are susceptible to distraction. The imperative to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus is the only way we can avoid these traps and distractions. What has your “eye‟?
