2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. (Colossians 3:2 NIV)
Life has a way of keeping us focused on the things of this world and not on the higher thoughts of things above.
Thus our basal selves tend to rule the day and we do not take the time to consider the impact on those around us.
But when we set our minds on things above, we can find that things of the world tends to fall into its rightful place.
