Set your mind and keep focused habitually on the things above [the heavenly things], not on things that are on the earth [which have only temporal value]. Colossians 3:2 AMP
It’s good to make plans but make eternally and kingdom base plans, make heavenly plans. C. S Lewis said All that is not eternal is eternally useless”
In God’s eyes, the greatest heroes of faith are not those who achieve prosperity, success, and power in this life, but those who treat this life as a temporary assignment and serve faithfully,
Never focus on temporary crowns. Give it time, one day it will be thrashed by someone else. Rick Warren.
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 KJV
Anything you do that does not count in heaven is not worth doing. Anything that cannot be traceable to the eternity is worthless.
Many are working hard to meet the requirements for mundane things but not many are working hard to meet the requirements for heaven. If people are clapping for you and the hosts of heavens are not clapping, it’s time to set your heart on things that are eternal.
Don’t focus too much on the mundane things of this world, they are only meant to appear for a while, in just a twinkle of an eye, it will all turn to ashes. Seek the eternal glory that never fades away, seek the things that are above.
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. Matthew 6:20 KJV.
Invest more time, more resources, more treasures more energy in things that have great rewards both in time and in eternal.
Have the rapture in focus. Live every day as one expecting the Master; carry that consciousness in your heart at all times. Walk in love, walk in righteousness, walk in holiness. And while you’re getting yourself ready, help those around you to get ready as well by preaching and teaching them God’s Word.
Jesus Loves you.
