We've looked at several different elements of our lives in this series. Physical possessions, entertainment and leisure activities all have the potential to distract us from God's Will and harm our relationship with Jesus. However, these 3 are all symptoms of another larger form of distraction and harm: Success. How does the pursuit of this lofty aspiration, especially from the wrong perspective, distract and harm us? We examine that question today.
Activities and Hobbies
We have looked at physical possessions and entertainment so far and their effect on our spiritual walk with God. The amount of time and energy we spend on these two areas will help dictate whether we stay in balance with God or find ourselves outside the path He has set for us. Today we shift focus to another area of our lives that has the potential to pull us out of balance with God.

Entertainment: The Distraction Before Downfall
Last week looked at physical possessions, an area that is easy to identify but difficult to abandon. This week we turn our attention to something a little more abstract. Entertainment is a relative term. Some find it in television and others in a good book. Some find it in social gatherings and performance events. Regardless, entertainment can be a good thing that stimulates the senses and the mind. However, it is easily overindulged in and can lead us to removing from reality. That's the danger that we look at today through the downfall of several groups and people.
