Heavenly Values Last Forever!

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” (Colossians 3:2, NIV)

When we pray the Lord’s prayer, we ask God for His will to be done “on earth as it is in Heaven” (Matthew 6:10, NIV). Very simply, Christ is asking us to begin living eternity right now – while we are here on earth. We are to focus on His life and His teachings every day so that we live our lives in a way that will be an example for others to follow. Our minds should be set on “things above” when we first wake up in the morning and continue throughout the day until we go to sleep in the evening.

Earthly things have no value whatsoever. They don’t last; they are temporary. They pass away when we pass away. Heavenly values last forever, throughout eternity! They will never pass away!

Set your mind on “things above” this Monday. Begin living for eternity – right now! Enjoy your day, “Working for Christ”!
