Perspective on earthly things

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Col. 3:2

Every day we make choices about our thoughts, perceptions, focus, and response to life around us. Thinking on “things above” is not permission to disengage from life on earth for fear we might dirty ourselves. People who do that seldom reflect the present-in-the-moment love of Christ for people…and they get annoying fast. The option to “set our minds” invites and empowers us to engage with and process our world through the eternal, loving, gracious, redemptive lens of Christ Himself.

Lord, take my mind past the limitations of my earthy perspective.
