Singular Focus

Your task is to single-mindedly serve Christ. Do that and you’ll kill two birds with one stone: pleasing the God above you and proving your worth to the people around you. 
(Romans 14:18 MSG)

When we describe someone as single-minded it is not always a positive term. Saying that someone only has one thing on their mind is most often a dig at their inability to be flexible in thought. It can even be used to describe someone infatuated with satisfying their physical needs with no regard for the people around them. When that single focus is on Christ however, it describes a person with properly aligned priorities. It describes someone who recognizes the unique opportunities God provides for growth & vision fulfillment each day. This person is confident, driven, loving, gentle, and self-controlled. 

Singularity of purpose can be a character attribute or flaw depending on our focus.
