The Devil’s Playground

I am used to thinking about the past and learning from my mistakes.

Paul encourages us, in 3:12-14, to forget what is in the past and focus on the target in the future.

That is great advice for me at the end of another school year.

I can’t focus on what I wish I’d done differently. Instead, I will focus on my target, preparing my students for their June 20 final exam.

This is easily applied to spiritual matters as well.

Once a sin is confessed, it’s forgiven. The past is the devil’s playground on my mind. Paul wisely counsels us to focus on the future, which is Jesus’ playground!
