Commit to What’s Best and Not Just What’s Good
By Rick Warren

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things” (Colossians 3:2 NIV)

Many of us believe we can multi-task without limits. However, our brain isn’t a computer; it can’t run different programs simultaneously. When we think we are “multi-tasking,” we are actually switching rapidly between tasks. Our attention is divided. That’s why people crash their cars when they try to text and drive.

And it’s why people crash in their journey to get healthy. Getting healthy the right way requires a relentless focus on God and his plan for healthy living. You focus on what’s most important and not allow yourself to get distracted by the trivial. If Satan can’t get you to do wrong, he’ll simply wear you out with a lot of good things. He’ll get you over-committed to the good but not the best.

The Bible says, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things” (Colossians 3:2 NIV).

As you make the commitment to get healthy, lay aside what doesn’t matter so you can focus on Jesus and his plan for your body.
