Morning Thought: The secret of perseverance is keeping your eyes on Jesus. Yet, this is not as easy as it first sounds. There are so many other things (good and bad) competing for your attention. Only by locking the eyes of your heart on Christ will you have clarity and courage to run your race. Learn from Moses’ example: “By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible” (Heb. 11:27, NIV).
