It’s easy to get wrapped up in the things that are happening around us, especially when those things are difficult. Conflict and hardships have a way of consuming our thoughts like nothing else. But just like everything on the Earth, those things too are temporary. God calls us to take our eyes off of the things that won’t last and put them instead on Him—the thing that will last forever. This week, when you find yourself focused on a problem or struggle in your life, stop and look up. Shift your eyes toward heaven and ask God to help keep your eyes on Him instead.
"Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things."
