Devotional: Focused On Eternity
Christian Devotion about what has Eternal Value
"...If then you have been raised with Christ [to a
new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the
dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures]
that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right
hand of God. And set your minds and keep them set
on what is above (the higher things), not on the
things that are on the earth. For [as far as this
world is concerned] you have died, and your [new,
real] life is hidden with Christ in God..." - Colossians 3:1-3 (AMPC)
"Set your minds and keep them set on what is above."
How we so easily lose that focus. We so often seem to
take our eyes off what has eternal value and tend to
things that have earthly value.
We should be focused on, and tending to, things of
eternal value. Nothing else matters. We can't take
anything with us. To be pursuing things of earthly
value and importance, robs us of what really matters.
We still remain discontented because it will never
satisfy. Only what has eternal value will ever satisfy.
Pursuing the riches of heaven above
Satisfies our souls like nothing else does.
