Summer thoughts to keep you on the journey: Where are you choosing to pay attention?
I was struck by a quote I read recently from the poet W. H. Auden, “Choice of attention—to pay attention to this and ignore that—is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences. Tell me to what you pay attention, and I will tell you who you are.” Isn’t that powerful? I still have Oasis on my mind and I think of all those who gave of their time and talent to serve and make this powerful camp possible. You all made a great choice! Thank you!!
With this in mind, more than anything or anyone else, we who are disciples of Jesus need to pay attention to the one who pays attention to us. Are we?
Turning our contemplation to the competent gaze of Jesus throughout our day isn’t just a nice idea, it’s a practical action. Discipleship to Jesus is a learning way as he taught us consistently in the gospels. With Jesus’ leading and the example of his people down through the ages, we make tangible plans to reorient our minds to Him and his Father’s kingdom resources in the midst of daily life, regardless of what’s going on.
So then what does this mean for me? Where are you choosing to pay attention to this day? This moment? That’ll show a lot about who or what you follow!
