Let heaven fill your thoughts. Do not think only about things down here on earth.
(Colossians 3:2 (NLT))
How much time do you spend at work?
How much time do you spend watching your favorite sports team or television shows?
How much time do you spend with your family, and how much time do you spend doing your favorite thing to do?
Now, compare that to how much time you spend in God’s word, in prayer and in church with other believers. If you are like me, there is far too big of a difference in time spent between the world and the Creator of the world.
Most of the Body of Christ spends too little time focused on heavenly things. We are so overwhelmed with what we have to do to earn a living and then what we choose to do to relax. We need to turn to the source of rest and peace.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
(Matthew 11:28 (NIV))
We need to learn to fill our thoughts with heavenly things!
