“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.“
The focal point in a picture is the point to which all elements in the picture draw your eye.
Likewise for Christians, Christ is the focal point that gives perspective to our lives. Without that focal point, some parts of our lives loom too large, while other parts are not large enough. Everything is out of proportion; somehow it just doesn’t come together into a life that makes sense.
And that is because “in him all things hold together.” If our lives are centered in Christ, we will have the right reference point to guide all our pathways, and to help us make decisions that will lead to a well-balanced life.
Dear God, thank You for granting me the grace to know You; the Lord of the universe, who holds all things together including my life! Teach me always to focus on You. In your name…Amen.
