Eyes Set on Jerusalem - Luke 13:31-35

Church Family, 

 

There is a famous study involving graduates of Yale University of the class of 1953. It was about goal setting. Setting goals is important. Do you know where you are headed in life? Do you know how you are going to get there? Have you counted the cost of what it will take to get you there?

The graduates involved in these studies at Yale were asked if they had a clear, specific set of goals for their future. Then they were asked if these goals were written down with a plan for achieving them? It turned out that only 3 percent of those interviewed had ever written down their goals.


You probably know where I am headed with this. Twenty years later, in 1973, the researchers went back and interviewed the surviving members of the 1953 graduating class. They discovered that the 3 percent with written specific goals had achieved more in financial terms than the entire other 97 percent put together. They were also happier and more satisfied with their lives. It pays to know where you are going.


Jesus knew where he was going. He probably never had a set of written goals, but there was no hesitation about where he would end up. In today’s lesson Jesus eyes’ are set on Jerusalem--the Holy City.
