“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every encumbrance and the sin that so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is se before us, fixing our eyes in Jesus, the author and protector of faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross” (Hebrews 12:1-2).

Having a focal point helps to prioritize our choices, decisions, and activities. The sinful things to be avoided are obvious, but what can be of even greater distraction in our goal of glorifying Christ are those things that though not sinful, and possibly even good, entangle and distract us from the more significant, Kingdom building endeavors we should be pursuing. Proper focus brings proper pursuits.
