Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on
earth. - Colossians 3:2
One of the main questions I
tried to answer within the post “Responsible
To Each Other” was how do we put God first in the future? After reading the
passage and giving it some thought, the best way to answer the question is by putting God FIRST in our finances, our
interests, our relationships, and in our time. Like the song Fix My Eyes by King & Country, we
should fix our eyes on the things of God.
I remember a while back when I
drove to work and saw a double rainbow in the sky. I got out of my truck and
started walking up the hill to the office when I realized that I left my badge
in my truck so I walked back to my truck and noticed the rainbow again.
This time, I took a few seconds
to aim my smart phone to get a picture of the rainbow. If we focus on God’s
beauty, we are able to make it through anything and realize that at the end of
the rainbow of life, there is a pot of gold because those who give up what’s in
the world and follow Christ, receive eternal riches in the kingdom of God.
