There’s a second principle here, though. Difference makers not only are focused, but difference makers look to God before they act. See the progression? Difference makers, they’re focused. They live a very focused life, and because they live a very focused life, they also, and let me read verse 12 to you, look before they act, and Moses did not do this. Check out what Moses did. Verse 11, “one day after Moses had grown up, he went out to where his own people were, watched them in all their labor.
He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people.” So what did he do? Verse 12. He didn’t look to God before he acted. That’s what a difference maker does; that’s the second principle. He did something else, “…glancing this way and that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian.” That’s not a difference maker. Moses, he glances this way and that way.
