“The Other Coast”, a cartoon by Adrian Raeside, recently made a humorous observation about the attention span of a dog. It’s about two minutes if the dog is in behavior training. It’s two hours if the dog has spotted a squirrel in a tree!
Sometimes our attention spans are woefully short. We can’t seem to focus for long on things that we say are really important to us. There are too many distractions. Our train of thought is too easily interrupted.
That’s why we need to be intentional about concentrating on those things that we deem most important. We need to be diligent in focusing on God.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”—Matthew 6:33.
“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”—Colossians 3:2.
