“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2 drops a big reality bomb on us. Earthly things take up most of our
time, whether it be our jobs, our entertainment, our friends, or or fun. It can be hard to set our minds on Jesus and His calling for our lives when we are so distracted with what this world has to offer.
That is why God gave us verses like this one, to remind us of where our thoughts and goals should be focused. Setting our sights on what God has planned for our lives can be a big leap of faith. It isn’t always the easiest road. We are so tempted to pursue our earthly wants and desires, when what God has in store for us is even greater than what this earth can offer us. We just have to listen to Him and seek His wisdom. This takes patience! Our timing is not always God’s timing.
When we set our sights on what God has planned for us instead of what this world says we should seek, we will live lives full of fulfillment and joy.
