Anthony DadyThought for the WeekStargazing


My daughter Tabitha has recently joined Beavers, the Scouts group for 6 to 8 year old children. This week they went out “stargazing”, although Tabitha told me that she only saw one star. It was a clear night, so I assume the lack of visibility was due to light pollution around her. With so many competing lights, it was hard to see the light coming from the stars. The other lights were distractions and barriers to being able to see what she had intended to.

This reminds me of a section in the Biblical book of Hebrews, where the author tells those reading to get rid of any distractions that may get in the way of living as we should: “Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus.” Hebrews 12:1-2 NIV Like the lights Tabitha saw, many things in life can compete for our attention and stop us from focusing on what we intend to. Let’s cast off these distractions, focus on Jesus and live for him.
In Christian love,
Anthony Dady
