My daughter and I spent the weekend at the University of Alabama for Orchestra All-State. The conductor for her orchestra was very good, in addition to entertaining enough to keep the youth’s attention for long days, 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM one day. He spent the whole time reinforcing the need to never, ever take your eyes off the conductor, because you may get ahead, behind, or miss your cue.
Doesn’t that apply so much to our Christian Life? How often do we take our eyes off the Lord and worry about our “part” just to find that we have gotten out of step with the Lord the next time we look at Him.
Ps 119:37 Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways. ESV
Ps 145:15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. ESV
Prov 23:26 My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe my ways. ESV
Mic 7:7 But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. ESV
Thankfully the Lord is a perfect and holy conductor that will never lead us astray.
Aren’t you glad the Lord is in charge and not Victor Borge?
Hope you enjoy this video.
