Capsule for the Day

There are many things bargaining for our attention. Some of these things distract us from our God given purpose. The worst of these things is to focus on what others are doing and to compare ourselves with them. This attitude steals our joy. It makes us less who we are and who we can be.

We are called to focus on what God is doing and what He can do with us and through us. The more we focus on God's action, the more we become who He created us to be; the more we are driven by His purpose, not by our fears and anxieties; the less we become distracted by others.

Focusing on God and His action is the best way to live life to the full and to actualise our potential. Focusing on Him helps us to conserve our energy, to do more, to do better and to be smarter. For God isn't just the Creator, He also empowers us to be co-creators, to do greater works.
