Distractions and the Bible

In today’s world, it is easy to get distracted. In fact, distractions are the cause of most accidents. But what about our spiritual life? Can distractions get in the way there as well?

Matthew 6:23 tells us; “But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” It’s only human.

Are we focused on the Kingdom and God’s plan, or do we get sidetracked and become angry just like the world around us? It’s human nature to retaliate when someone hurts us, but is that what we should do? As God’s people, we have a responsibility to be good examples to those around us.

Hebrews 12:1-2 says we must focus on Jesus: “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

And 1 Corinthians 7:35 says, “And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.” The interesting thing about distractions is that when they happen, we are totally unaware. We have no idea that anything at all is happening to us, and we simply react.

The opposite of distraction is focus. We must focus to keep ourselves from becoming distracted. But what does the Bible have to say about being focused?

Psalm 86:11: “Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name.”

Romans 12:17: “Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.”

Colossians 3:1-2: “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

Also in 1 Timothy 4:16 we are told to “focus on your life and your teaching” (God’s Word).

While it is inevitable that we will become distracted in life, it is most important that we remember to stay focused on God and His ways. We learn to do this by studying His Word and praying for His guidance. We then put it into action by following His Word and, whenever possible, steering clear of the areas and ways that lead us to distraction. It’s not always easy, but we can have God’s help.2
