Colossians 3:2

“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” (NASB)


“Set your mind (phroneo: think, regard, affections, to seek, to strive for) on the things above (ano: high, upwards, above, of heaven), not on the things that are on earth (ge: land, ground, world, earthly).”


Think on and set your affections toward things of heaven, not on worldly things of the earth.


Today, strive to see every situation and every person through “heavenly eyes”. When you encounter someone, whether stranger, friend or foe, see them in light of heaven. When you face the routines of normal life, approach them from a heavenly perspective. Deliberately take steps today to set your mind on heavenly things - the cares of the earth will then begin to fall away.
