t is nearly impossible to operate a vehicle while looking anywhere but ahead. It is not safe unless you are focussed on a point that is in front of you. When riding a motorcycle through sharp corners our eyes must be focussed on where we want to go. A quote about cornering a motorcycle is significant, “You should always look where you want to go and know that your motorcycle will go where you look.” How interesting is this quote in comparison to our life and the temptations that we face each week. The wonderful verses from Proverbs are a good reminder on how we should live our life.
“Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.” Proverbs 4:25-27, ESV.
Note the passage in Hebrews 12:1-2, NLT. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honour beside God’s throne.”
