Saul was so preoccupied with seeking after David that he neglected to watch his real enemy, the Philistines. The Philistines took his life and those of his sons and David took his throne.So many of us have focused on the wrong things and we wonder why our enemy has gained on us. Our eyes and attention is everywhere except where it needs to be and then the next thing we know, we have lost our place, those connected to us suffer, and God raises someone else up to take our place. Losing focus is costly. And what’s worse is you don’t know you’ve lost focus until it’s too late. When God tells you to pay attention, do it. He is still filling abandoned seats with his Davids.
