Object Lesson

Have you every played baseball before? Playing baseball can be a lot of fun, but do you know what my favorite part is? Hitting the ball! When I was young I learned how to hit the ball. My dad taught me how to hold the bat with two hands and how to stand so I could get a good swing. Do you know what the most important part of hitting the ball is though? (Wait for responses.) Keeping your eye on the ball.

The first time you get ready to hit you might want to watch your bat to see if you are swinging it correctly. Then you might want to watch the pitcher to see when they throw the ball. But if you are watching those things are you going to be able to hit the ball? No! You have to keep your eyes focused on the ball and then you can swing at the right time and hit a homerun!

In Hebrews 12:2 it tells us that we need to keep our eyes on something too. Not a baseball! We need to keep our eyes on Jesus so we can know where He is leading and guiding us. We need to focus on him and not on everything around us that tries to distract us.
