  We’re an addicted generation. We don’t think of ourselves as addicted, but we are. That’s a tough blanket to spread, isn’t it? Mention the word addicted and the tone in a room instantly changes.

Where Does Your Gaze Fall?

What are you thinking about and focusing on? Who or what captivates your attention? Where does your gaze fall? Is it mostly on you or on Jesus?
