I have been pontificating on how so much of life and spiritual realities parallel math. I guess I should not be surprised, seeing Who created both of them, I should expect His character to be written across it all.
Whatever you focus on, you will become.
Therefore, whatever you are running away from, you are certain to run into.
I find it interesting in life to watch what motivates and manipulates folks. One of the things I have found as a constant is how focus…. Real, interior focus…. tends to control outcomes. This is true both in negatives and positives. Take, for example, someone terribly hurt by their father. They will often recoil in hurt and anger, then deep in their heart determine, “ I will NEVER be like my dad.”
