Being on Target-Take Dead Aim

By JIm Sheard/Scott Lehman
But as for you, man of God, shun all this; aim at righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. (I Timothy 6:ll)

Take Dead Aim

I Timothy 6:ll-20; II Corinthians 8:20-21


-KEY VERSE-

 But as for you, man of God, shun all this;

aim at righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.

( I Timothy 6:ll)

 

Harvey Penick wrote "Take Dead Aim."  In just three words he emphatically says your aim should be sure and clear, focused directly on the goal or target. Do not step up to the ball until you have made sure where you are aiming.  Every golf instructor makes a similar point by saying that we must have a clear vision of the target and focus on it.  The target must be something specific such as a certain tree in the skyline, a marker, or the middle of the green. 

 

In life we also need to identify our target, our ultimate purpose, and then aim at it.  We need to set specific goals and avoid the distractions. If we are distracted by too many goals or by short term projects and lesser opportunities, we will probably not achieve the most important goals we have set for ourselves.

Harvey Penick makes it clear that we are to "TAKE DEAD AIM".    In three words he seems to be saying focus directly on the goal or target for each shot.  He is emphatically saying that your aim should be sure and clear.  Do not step up to the ball until you have made sure exactly what it is you are aiming for.

In I Timothy we are encouraged to shun those things which are temptations and distractions from God.  We are to aim at that which is of God.  Since there is much to distract us from the best God has to offer, we must take dead aim on the really important things in our life.  What are your goals for this dayAt the close of the day wWhatwhat do you want to complete and accomplish?
