Where Is Your Gaze?

This early bird doesn’t get up for worms, but the sunrise on the beach at Hilton Head Island, where we are vacationing this week, is definitely worth getting up early for. Armed with camera and tripod this morning I made my way down to the beach, a couple hundred yards from our villa, and set up just before the glorious red sphere emerged from the sea.
As I clicked off some shots, I noticed the early joggers and dog walkers were stopping near me and pulling out their camera phones. I guess when someone sets a nice SLR on a tripod, they look like they know what they’re doing, and what they’re pointing that big lens at must be important. I wasn’t anticipating anything out of the ordinary for this sunrise, but my attention and commitment to it made others want to look too.
Where do you fix your gaze? My worship of our glorious Creator should be obvious and intentional. We glorify God when we make Him look good, and all we need to do to make Him look good is to show the world who He really is. Start your day with an obvious heavenward focus and see who else follows your gaze.
