Morning Thought: What are you focusing on? A few days ago, I woke up with this image and drew it as a cartoon. My character (Hopie) is sad. He’s looking at something he’s planted and it’s tiny—it doesn’t seem to be growing. His eyes are fixated on how little it looks. But then, a voice comes from heaven, “Turn around. Look behind you!” There is something big and growing that he has planted. If he turns around, and looks in the right spot, he will be encouraged. Today, focus on the good things God is causing to grow in your life. “I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth” (1 Cor. 3:6-7).
