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 everything with a heavenly mindset. Set aside your personal interests and opinions and only view all that comes your way via the Spirit. Often the surface issue is much different than the heart of the matter that is easily seen. How does one become unmoved and unswayed by his ever changing surroundings? He sets his mind and affections on the things that are above that cannot be shaken.
