The world wants your attention. What will you do?
Matthew 6:33 New International Version (NIV)33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
From the Buddhist Canon:
"Consider, Malunkyaputta, this story of a man wounded by a poisoned arrow. His friends, relatives, and well-wishers gather around him and a surgeon is called. But the wounded man says, ‘Before he takes out this arrow, I want to know if the man who shot me was a Kshatriya, a Brahmin, a merchant, or an untouchable.’
"Or he says, ‘I won’t let this arrow be removed until I know the name and tribe of the man who shot me.’
"Or: ‘Was he tall, short, or of medium height?’
"Or: ‘Was he black, brown, or yellow-skinned?’
"What do you think would happen to such a man, Malunkyaputta? Let me tell you. He will
"And that is what happens when a man comes to me and says, ‘I will not follow the Dhamma
until the Buddha tells me whether the world is eternal or not eternal, whether the world is finite or infinite, whether the soul and the body are the same or different, whether the liberated person exists or does not exist after death, whether he neither exists nor does not exist after death.’ He will die, Malunkyaputta, before I get a chance to make everything clear to him."
