Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2
I’ve been told that the word affection means mind. Set your mind on things above.
I don’t know about you but my mind tends to wonder when I’m in church or when I’m having my quite time.
You have two choices to make.
1. You can give up and say I’m not getting anything out of this.
2. Or, you can discipline yourself to do what you know you should do.
Five years ago I made up my mind to have a Quite Time Daily. I promised the Lord I wouldn’t miss spending time alone with Him unless I had one foot in the grave or I was in a coma.
I’ve not broken my promise and I’m here to tell ya that God has changed this old country boy in more ways than one!
Now, don’t hear me as bragging! I tell you this to let you know if I can do it so can you!
Set your mind on things above, and not on the things on the earth!
