“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” - Colossians 3:2
In life, there is a fierce competition for our attention. The issues of our day are numerous, and it can be easy to become distracted from what is most important. Each of us are here on the planet to love others and to strengthen those around us with the love and goodness of God. With His help, we can all make a real difference, but it does mean we have to stay focused. When we drive a car, we can be distracted by many things: the radio, our phone, our passengers, and more. But we have one job: to get to our destination safely. In the end that’s all that matters. Today we have one job: to love God and love people with all our heart, soul, and strength. Let’s refuse to become distracted from this life-giving opportunity. Let’s set our minds on things above!
