1 Reason Not to Look Back

Jesus of Nazareth said, “one who puts hand to plow and looks back is not fit for the kingdom of God” (Lk 9.62).  A person working for God looks ahead to the goal of the mission, not behind which is further away from the goal.

Satchel Paige of Mobile (Ala.) said, “don’t look back, something might be gaining on you.”  Do not be concerned with what is behind.  Something may be chasing you, but it shouldn’t distract you.  M.B. Roberts has a nice, concise biographical essay on Paige at ESPN.com.

The lesson we’re being taught here is – look forward.  The future is an important place for us to go.
