"Eyes on Your Own Work!"

Remember when teacher would say "eyes on your own work"? These words were never directed to me because I was a good student. God could say these words to me today.

How can I admire a friend's new paint job without allowing my mind to wander to my grubby walls?

Eyes on your own work!
