When I first came to Georgia, I saw a man plowing a field with a mule. "May I try it?" I asked.
"Yes, sir," he answered. "But be careful."
When I was finished with the row I looked back. I saw that mine was crooked but his was straight.
"What did I do wrong?" I asked.
"Your eyes wandered," he said. "I fixed my eyes on a goal."
As in cultivating, so in Christian living, the secret lies in looking straight ahead.
The wise man cautioned, "Look straight ahead; don't even turn your head to look."
And to whom should we look? The Living Bible answers, "Keep your eyes on Jesus, our Leader and Instructor."
