Our modern world is full of distractions today.

Some of these distractions are good. Who would argue with a mother putting her laundry on the back burner to play peek-a-boo with her infant?

Some, though, are not so good. Facebook, anyone?

The most important thing we need to remember is that God has placed a task in front of each of us. It might be mentoring a young woman or man to help them grow into maturity, or helping a neighbor tame their unruly yard, or making sure our kids know that God loves them.

It might be a goal He wants you to accomplish, like writing a book or starting a ministry.

Whatever God has placed before you to do, don’t get distracted! Yes, life is full of ups and downs, and sometimes we get off track and end up somewhere we don’t mean to be. But, we have to always remember where we’re going, and get right back to it.

Whether it’s checking email (and FACEBOOK!) before you spend time with God, or never getting around to writing that note of encouragement someone so desperately needs, don’t get distracted!

What has God called you to do today?
