Day 7: Colossians 3:2

Set your minds on things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

Colossians 3:2

We get more than mud-caked feet as we walk through this messy world. Our minds get twisted and tied up in devices, desires, and disappointments to the point that we can forget what is truly important. Note that right this very second, someone could ask your son or daughter what is important to you and they would be able to answer embarrassingly accurately. They live with you. They watch your values come alive in decisions all throughout the day. The negative side of this is scary, but the positive side is exciting. As we set our minds on what is important to God, our kids will see that too!

Day 7 Reflection:

What earthly things is your mind stuck on?

What “things above” should be a new focus as you move forward?
