Focus not on yourself or you will become vain or bitter

Because of the things you have or do not have.

You may even develop the spirit of covetousness for the

things you do not have but others have.

Focus not on others or you may become judgmental

For you will never run out of things to criticize others

And God said, "judge not that you may not be judged"

(Matthew 7:1)

And, "with what measure you measure so shall it be

measured unto you" (Matthew 7:2)

Focus instead on God and we will realize our "smallness"

and "nothingness" before His throne,

And we will realize that "apart from Him we can do nothing."

"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith"

(Hebrews 12:2a)

Focus on the countless blessings and divine mercy you

received from God and you will realize that you are

far, far better than millions of people around the world

who literally have nothing

The secret of happiness is focusing on the things God

has given us and being content with that,

Knowing that, "and my God will provide for all your needs

according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus"

(Philippians 4:19)

When we die, we will be leaving everything behind

And the beautiful body that we so adored will be

food for the worms.

And when we have not done anything in furtherance

of the kingdom of God, we will be facing the Lord

empty handed and we will rue the day that we

neglected to focus on Him.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your

understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and

He shall direct your paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Daming natatamaan nito ahh, sometimes talaga kahit ayaw natin maging bitter at mainggit sa iba, parang mahirap maiwasan lalo na at yun ang naging upbringing mo, o kaya lumaki kang na didiscrimate.

Thanks for the post Sir Mel,
