The Above Things
The older we get, the more things we have to occupy our minds. These things can be good, bad or time wasters but they are there and sometimes even make it into our subconscious or dream-state.
Humanity has reached a record level of sources vying for our attention and consideration of their products or services. With all we have to think about as adults in this world to simply live, it is a wonder our brains don't explode from input overload.
However, I think and believe Christians can derive wonderful counsel from God's Word in Mark 12:17. Jesus says in this verse - "Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's."
In context, Christ was referring to proper monetary appropriation as He answered the Pharisees, but I believe this proper appropriation can be applied to life or the world and God or your journey with The Lord.
In Matthew 22:37, Jesus answered the Pharisees question about the greatest commandment by stating to love God with "all your mind". What does this look like? In Colossians 3:1-3, Paul gets us started by shifting our gaze and perspective heavenward."Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God."
