Pay Attention

September 1, 2009

Just finished reading Andy Stanley‘s the Principle of the Path. It’s a great book that I would absolutely recommend for everyone in all walks of life. Instead of giving you a summary of the book I figured I would share one of the things God showed me in a chapter. It’s chapter nine called Attention Retention. Here is the main quote I want to talk about.

“Over and over, God reminds us that the things to which we harness our attention direct our lives; whatever captures our attention will determine our destination.”

The principle here is that when we pay attention we are actually paying something and getting something of value back. The flip side is our attention can be captured by something and that can also be something we have to pay for.
