If I Focus On…by Joseph Howard

(Another gem by a facebook friend)

If I focus on:

me – fruit is – either pride or self pity

things – fruit is – covetousness

finances – fruit is – worry

the future – (see above)

the past – fruit is – regret

other people – fruit is – disappointment

entertainment – fruit is – idolatry

Jesus – fruit is – worship, praise, thankfulness, brokenness, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, patience, peace, healing, wholeness, faith (and many other good things)

Hmm… lets see know… what shall I focus on ?

One thought on “If I Focus On…by Joseph Howard

  1. BEAUTIFUL! SO TRUE! SO ‘LOVELY.’

    Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
