In this time when multi-tasking is so popular, we often forget how valuable being single-minded can be. When we focus on one mission, we are easily able to push away the distractions from it. Perhaps this is why the “mindfulness” movement is so popular, which calls you to be active and attentive in the present. Christ asks us to trust him with our present moment because we know our future has been determined when we place our faith in him and receive eternal life. Keeping our minds on him will help us rightly order our desires and make any sacrifices he asks of us.
