Proverbs 4:25 (NLT)
25 Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you.

In this verse Solomon tells us with undivided attention we are to keep focused on what is ahead of us. We should keep ourselves focused on the Lord and to approve ourselves to him. We are to look to the prize of the high calling of our Lord and Savior and direct our attention there.



From the book, The Words of Harry S. Truman, Harry Truman says, �If you�ve done the best you can---if you have done what you need to do---there is no use worrying about it, because nothing can change it, and to be in a position of leadership� you have to give thought to what�s going to happen the next day and you have to be fresh for�what you have to do the next day. What you�re going to do is more important than what you have done.�

We can�t change the past; but we can fix our eyes on what lies before us and focus on what the future will be. We need to look to the Lord for our guidance and keep a straight course. Leave the past behind and be ready to move onto the next day. The Lord wants us to look forward to our next step and not dwell on where our walk has been.
