What has captured your attention lately?
What's the best gift you've received lately?
Just some thoughts. No coherence.
Today I went to North Point church for the 9:00am service.
Here's Andy Stanley's main point, but I leave off the application:
Attention influences Direction, and Direction determines Destination.
Notice (going backwards) that it's not our intention that determines our Destination. It's our actual Direction. And then, the Direction we take is influenced by our Attention. Our attention can be accidental (something grabbed my attention / someone captured my attention) or it can be intentional: I'm paying attention now, I'm giving my attention to this topic.
Makes me think of Wayne Dyer's concept of Intentional Living.
