Focus – John 21:20-22

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

John 21:20-22
Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?” Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.”

“What is that to you? You must follow me.” This verse shows our need to see the importance of focusing on what YHWH wants for our individual lives and not be concerned with what He has for others. Take your eyes off what YWHW may be doing for others. Focus on what He wants to do in you. When we focus on what YHWH may be doing in others, it can only breed jealously, discontentment and even self pity. How can we move forward in a victorious life in Him with those attitudes lingering in our hearts?

The prophets Micah, Isaiah and Hosea lived at the same. Yet never once do we hear one was jealous of the other. Don’t short change yourself by looking at others. Keep your focus on Him.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
