Prov 4:25 Let your eyes look straight ahead. And your eyelids look right before you. 26 Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established.
Holman Bible says, 'fix your gaze.' Wise people look forward keeping their vision on the future, not on the past. Keep yourself focussed, without distraction, on your vision. Don't look to the right & left while walking forward. You'll crash into something, fall down a hole or worse. Look where you're going. Even though the sun is 24,000 degrees on the surface it takes the steady consistent focus of a magnifying glass to start a fire. Think before you act. Take time to make decisions. Each step will be secure, giving you a solid platform for the next step.
