The most coveted record in the history of flight has just been broken. Dillon Ruble, Nathaniel Erickson, and Garrett Jensen, three engineers at Boeing, broke the record in December. What did they do?
They designed a paper airplane that flew 290 feet with a single toss. Ruble was the one tasked with throwing the plane. He said, “Our design is a little different from others. It takes 20 minutes to fold the plane.” The record was recognized by Guiness World Records.
Paul had a different focus: “This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth to those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14).
Whether your goal is to build paper airplanes that fly 290 feet or to seek after Christ, the strategy is the same.
Focus. Focus. Focus.
Recovery Step: You can walk with Christ. And you can walk in recovery. But to do so, you must pursue your goal with a singular focus.
