“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:1-2
There are many things in life which draw our attention on a daily basis. So many earthly things pull us towards them, and as believers we are most likely going to go after them. It is easy to be consumed with the issues of this life and forget about all that God has for us beyond what we see on this earth. Beloved, God’s word says that we must set our affections on heavenly things – things of eternal value. When it’s all been said and done, one thing matters – the treasures you have in heaven. I trust God that we will be ‘heaven-affectioned’ rather than being ‘earth-affectioned’.
