“Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you . . . Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil.” Proverbs 4:25 & 27 NLT
Distractions can prove deadly. Even what seems good, when it side tracks us from the best, exacts a toll.
Things that side track us from following after God are the worst. The big three are the allurements of sin, the world, and self-conceit (1 John 2:16).
Great advice in this verse. We need to be ruthless with ourselves in keeping our eyes on the prize and eliminating distractions from our lives.
