Not On Earthly Things

In verse 2 of Colossians 3, Paul reiterates his encouragement of verse 1. He says:

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. – Colossians 3:2 (NIV)

It’s SO easy to get caught up in the worries and stresses of this world. It’s SO easy to get caught up in the trappings of this world. It’s SO hard to focus on heavenly things instead of earthly things. We must remember that the stuff down here is only temporary, while the stuff of Heaven is eternal. Your financial struggles are only temporary. Your illness is only temporary. Your struggles with mental illness are only temporary. Your car issues, house issues or job issues are only temporary. Your relationship with Jesus is eternal. Remember that today as earthly issues try to crowd out your eternal joy. This life is but a pit stop on the way to Heaven. Keep your mind set on the things of Heaven because that’s where your hope is and where you’re headed.
