Fixing Our Eyes

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Pioneer and Perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.(Hebrew 12:2)

In the cotton farming country around Lamesa, Texas, where I grew up, the land was flat and the cotton rows often where as straight as an arrow. 

I asked a farmer how he made the rows so straight. He said, "When I plow a new role I fix my eyes on an object at the far end of the field and never look back. You can't plow looking back. 

- Calvin T. Partain, Proclaim,Oct-Dec 1995, Pg11
