Who are you inviting to the Amplify event this Wednesday?

Can I have your attention please

Attention influences direction. Direction determines destination.

Why is what has our attention so important?


Psalms 119:35,37
Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.  

  • What are the worthless things that we need to turn our eyes and our attention away from?
  • What are the things that capture your attention that will only lead you down paths you don’t want to go?
  • Do you think there is anything in your life that you allow to take too much of your time?


Provebs 4:25,27
Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.
Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. 

  • Share a time when you got really focused on a goal and achieved it.
  • In what situations are you the most tempted to swerve to the left or the right?
  • How can you be proactive and keep your eyes straight ahead?


Setting a Path

When you think 5 to 10 years down the road, what are some of your goals/dreams? (Be specific). Where do you want to be when it comes to faith, friends, family, career/school?

  • As a group, talk about things you will have to pay attention to now if you want to someday see those dreams come true.
  • What will paying attention to those things cost you?
  • What will be the big things that distract you and grab your attention away from your goals?
