A Thought for Tuesday

Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. Philippians 3:19

“Too often, we've got our mind set on earthly things, and not on the big picture of what God is, who He is, and what He's doing in and around us. If you find yourself consumed with life and all of its nuances, pull back a bit and set your mind on what He is doing around you. Allow that to realign the priorities of your thought processes and your heart.”

I received the above paragraph in an email this morning and thought, “HOW TRUE!!” It is so easy to become so consumed with the daily things of our lives that we forget what God has for us and how He wants to work through us. We can become like Martha....too busy, being busy.

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2
